    I suppose you are asking what "w" is:

    your equation is

    5w+8-12w=16-15w

    combine like terms to get

    -7w+8=16-15w

    add 15w on both sides (since you're doing it to both sides the equation is still equal)

    8w+8=16

    subtract 8 from both sides

    8w=8

    divide both sides by 8 and you get:

    w=1

    if you want to check your answer, plug in the value of "w" into the original equation.
