Algebra question

i need to solve this:

4/5n +2 = -3(3/4n - 8 )

I cant seem to get it right, so if you could also explain how its done that would be helpful.

Thank You.

Please clarify that "(4/5)n" was meant rather than "4/(5n)", and "(3/4)n" rather than "3/(4n)".
Either way, the first step in solving the equation is to gather the terms in n on one side of the equation and the remaining terms on the other side.
