multiply both sides of the given equation by ax−2. When you multiply each side by ax−2, you should have:
You should then multiply (−8x−3) and (ax−2) using FOIL.
Then, reduce on the right side of the equation
Since the coefficients of the x2-term have to be equal on both sides of the equation, −8a=24, or a=−3.
so answer is -3
