-2(8n - 4) = 8(1 - n)

Let's use distributive property to open parentheses

-2 • 8n - (-2) • 4 = 8 • 1 - 8 • n

- 16n + 8 = 8 - 8n

- 8 - 8

- 16n = - 8n

+ 8n + 8n

- 8n = 0 ----->**n = 0**

-2(8n-4) = 8(1-n)

1) Multiply - remember to use plenty of brackets

(-2*8n) + (-2*4) = (8*1) + (8*-n) --->

-16n + 8 = 8 + -8n

2) Bring all terms with n to one side -->

-8n + 8 = 8

3) Divide all terms by 8 -->

-n + 1 = 1

4) Solve -->

n = 0
