$\begin{gathered} 8x - 16 = 0 \\ \textcolor{#4257b2}{{\text{Add 16 to each side}}} \\ 8x - 16 + 16 = 16 \\ 8x = 16 \\ \textcolor{#4257b2}{{\text{Divide both sides by 8}}} \\ \frac{{8x}}{8} = \frac{{16}}{8} \\ x = 2 \\ \textcolor{#4257b2}{\underline{{\text{Check the solution}}}} \\ \underbrace {8x - 16 = 0}_ \Downarrow \\ 8\left( 2 \right) - 16 = 0 \\ 16 - 16 = 0 \\ 0 = 0 \\ \left( {{\text{Solution checks}}} \right) \\ \end{gathered}$
