D. $$\frac{17}{16}$$
E. $$\frac{33}{16}$$

$$2[3(n + 4) - 8]$$$$=5[11 - (6 - 2n)]$$

$$6n+8=10n+25$$

or $$n =-\frac{17}{4}$$

$$\frac{{3(n+4)−8}}{5}$$ = $$\frac{{11−(6−2n)}}{2}$$
$$\frac{{3n+12-8}}{5}$$=$$\frac{{11-6+2n}}{2}$$
$$\frac{{3n+4}}{5}$$=$$\frac{{5+2n}}{2}$$
6n+8=25+10n
4n=-17
n=$$\frac{-17}{4}$$
