3x + 6 + 1 = 8 [Distributive property]

3x + 7 = 8

(3x + 7) + (-7) = 8 + (-7)

3x + (7 + -7) = 8 + -7 [Associativity of addition]

3x + 0 = 1 [Addition of additive inverse]

3x = 1 [0 is the additive identity]

(1/3)(3x) = (1/3)(1)

(1/3 * 3)x = (1/3)(1) [Associativity of multiplication]

(1)x = (1/3)(1) [Multiplication of multiplicative inverse]

x = 1/3 [1 is the multiplicative identity]
