Final Answer :
A
Explanation :
The equations are not equivalent because when simplified, the first equation becomes x=5x = 5x=5 (subtracting 8 from both sides), and the second equation simplifies to x=1x = 1x=1 (subtracting 24 from both sides and then dividing by 2), leading to different values for xxx .
