5(x+2)= 11-(8x)

Just solve for x. If you don't know how to do it then start off by moving the variable to one side. It's really difficult to explain verbally so look up tutorials similar to this on YouTube or another video site.

That isn't right. When it says
"less than" the order of the subtraction should be reversed.
5(x + 2) = 8x - 11
5x + 10 = 8x - 11
-5x -5x
10 = 3x -11
21 = 3x
7 = x. ANSWER
