How do you write half a number decreased by 8 is equal to the sum of the number and 14

First write an algebraic equation for x, the number you are looking for. x-8 is the number decreased by 8 and that needs to equal 5x. x-8=5x so now subtract 5x from both sides and add 8 to both sides and we have -4x=8 so x is -2. Now we plug that back in the original English sentence. -2 decreased by 8 is -10 and 5 times -2 is negative 10.
