To solve the equation 14/(x - 8) + 2 = 10/(x - 8), you can start by multiplying both sides of the equation by (x - 8) to eliminate the denominators. This gives you 14 + 2(x - 8) = 10. Simplify the equation by distributing 2 to the terms inside the parentheses: 14 + 2x - 16 = 10. Combine like terms: 2x - 2 = 10 - 14. Simplify further: 2x - 2 = -4. Add 2 to both sides of the equation: 2x = -4 + 2. Simplify: 2x = -2. Finally, divide both sides of the equation by 2 to solve for x: x = -2/2. Therefore, x = -1.
