can someone help me solve this problem?

What is the value of x?

(3+2)(6-2)(7+1)=(4+4)(x)

(5)(4)(8)=8x

8x=160

I don't get the last part

x=20=8+12

where did the 12 come from?

Perhaps I am missing something but I think the 8 + 12 is just another way of writing 20.

If 8x = 160, then

x = 20

and we COULD write it as 8 + 12 although I don't know why we would want to do so.

ooh dur lol me nither but theres a multiple choice answer in my book and i guess that's it. Thank You
