Solve the following linear equation:
To find x, we need to remove -8. To do so, add +8 to both sides of the equation. The equation becomes:
Notice, that -8 and +8 cancels off. There, we are left with:
Now, we can simplify the expression by adding 1 with 8. This gives 9.
We have solved the equation (x = 9). Clearly, the answer is B.
