(3 x 8)-2 + (3+6)=17, I need a word problem to match the equation and am stumped, could you please help

• Algebra -

(3x^(8))-2+(3+6)=17

(3x^(8))-2+(9)=17

3x^(8)-2+9=17

3x^(8)+7=17

3x^(8)=-7+17

3x^(8)=10

(3x^(8))/(3)=(10)/(3)

x^(8)=(10)/(3)

x=\~8:((10)/(3))

x=\(~8:(10))/(~8:(3))

x=\(~8:(10))/(~8:(3))*(~8:((3)^(7)))/(~8:((3)^(7)))

x=\(~8:(21870))/(3)

x=(~8:(21870))/(3)

x=-(~8:(21870))/(3)

x=(~8:(21870))/(3),-(~8:(21870))/(3)_x<Congruent>1.16,-1.16
