As Mr. L pointed out, you have to add the two terms on the left-hand side (LHS):

5/8x + 1/16x=7/16

(10/16)x + (1/16)x = 7/16

10x + x = 7

11x = 7

I will leave it to you to complete the calculations.

-4 because you 11x=7-11=-4

If we start from

11x=7

we divide each side by 11 to get

(11/11)x = 7/11

x=7/11

So x=7/11 would be the correct answer.
