Step-by-step explanation:

Step 1: Define Equation

4x - 8 = 16

Step 2: Solve for x

  1. Add 8 to both sides:                    4x = 24
  2. Divide 4 on both sides:               x = 6

Step 3: Check

Plug in x into the original equation to verify it's a solution.

  1. Substitute in x:                   4(6) - 8 = 16
  2. Multiply:                              24 - 8 = 16
  3. Subtract:                             16 = 16

Here we see that 16 does indeed equal 16.

∴ x = 6 is the solution to the equation.
