    2x + 3 = 8

    We want to get x on its own. So first taking off 3 from each side,

    2x + 3 - 3 = 8 - 3

    Which works out as,

    2x = 5

    Then divide each side by two,

    2x / 2 = 5 / 2

    Therefore,

    x = 2.5

    You can then put x back in the orignial equation to check.

    Hope that helps! :)
