5x+8+3x-x+5=6x-3

do I start like this 5x+3x-x

or 5x+3x+8+5=6x-3

I would go:

5x+3x= 8x

then:

8x-x+13=6x-3

and then:

...hold on, what do you think so far, like, am I way off what you are thinking or should I keep going?

I don't know I am confused but then would it be 8x+13=16x+5=21x am I on the right track?

I think it's:

8=6x-3

then:

-3 minus 8= ? and then that divided from 6x
