To solve the equation (8(5 - n) = 2n), first distribute the (8) to both terms inside the parentheses:

[40 - 8n = 2n]

Next, simplify by combining like terms:

[40 = 2n + 8n] [40 = 10n]

Now, isolate (n) by dividing both sides of the equation by (10):

[n = \frac{40}{10}] [n = 4]

So, the solution to the equation is (n = 4).
