Step-by-step explanation:

Step 1: Define equation

3(x + 8) = 30

Step 2: Solve for x

1. Divide 3 on both sides:                              x + 8 = 10
2. Subtract 8 on both sides:                           x = 2

Step 3: Check

Plug in x into the original equation to verify it is a solution.

1. Substitute in x:                    3(2 + 8) = 30
