**Answer:Simplifying**

**x = -2.125**

**Step-by-step explanation:Add '-10' to each side of the equation.**

**10 + -10 + 8x = -7 + -10**

**Combine like terms: 10 + -10 = 0**

**0 + 8x = -7 + -10**

**8x = -7 + -10**

**Combine like terms: -7 + -10 = -17**

**8x = -17**

**Divide each side by '8'.**

**x = -2.125**

**Simplifying**

**x = -2.125**

Answer: x=-17/8

First, distribute the 10

10x + 10 = 2x - 7

Next, move the x-values to one side

8x = -17

Now, isolate the x by dividing both sides by 8

x = -17/8
