The correct answer is C. Trina is not correct because the two sides of the equation are equivalent.

Step-by-step explanation:

1. Let's solve for x

-8 (x - 4) + 2x = - 4 (x - 8) - 2x

-8x + 32 + 2x = - 4x + 32 - 2x

-6x + 32 = - 6x + 32

0 = 0

This equation has infinite solutions, any rational number fits as solution for x in this equation. And as we can see both sides of it are equivalent.

Therefore, the correct answer is C. Trina is not correct because the two sides of the equation are equivalent.
