can somebody help me with this problem....DONT GIVE ME THE ANSWER JUST HOW TO WORK IT...
2r + 8 / 4 = 3r  6 /3

i think i figured it out.....i think the answer is r=8

Not correct
Post your work and someone can explain what you are doing wrong.
First simplify 8/4 and 6/3
and then combine like terms. 
helper, its not 8/4 and 6/3. its 2r+8 over 4 = 3r6 over 3

That is written
(2r+8)/4 = (3r6)/3
(r+4)/2 = (r2)
r+4 = 2(r2)
r+4 = 2r  4
8 = r
check
(16+8)/4 =? (246)/3
24/4 = ? 18/3
6 = 6 yes, it checks 
Thanks so much!

(2r + 8)/4 = (3r  6)/3
Yes, you are correct, r = 8.
