To solve the equation 3(x - 4) + 16 = 2(x + 5), you first distribute the terms inside the parentheses:

3x - 12 + 16 = 2x + 10

Then, combine like terms:

3x + 4 = 2x + 10

Next, subtract 2x from both sides to isolate the variable:

3x - 2x + 4 = 10

x + 4 = 10

Finally, subtract 4 from both sides to solve for x:

x = 6
