**Hint:**We solve the given linear equation by simplifying the equation. We divide both sides of the equation $2x=13$ with 2. Then we simplify the right-hand side fraction to get the solution for $x$. We use the G.C.D of the denominator and the numerator to divide both of them. We get the simplified form when the G.C.D is 1.

**Complete step by step answer:**

The given equation $5=2x-8$ is a linear equation of $x$.

We first try to simplify it by taking the constants and the variables separately on the opposite sides of the equality. We add both sides with 8.

$\begin{align}

& 5=2x-8 \\

& \Rightarrow 5+8=2x-8+8 \\

& \Rightarrow 2x=13 \\

\end{align}$

We divide both sides of the equation $2x=13$ with 2.

\[\begin{align}

& \dfrac{2x}{2}=\dfrac{13}{2} \\

& \Rightarrow x=\dfrac{13}{2} \\

\end{align}\]

We need to find the simplified form of the proper fraction $\dfrac{8}{10}$.

Simplified form is achieved when the G.C.D of the denominator and the numerator is 1.

This means we can’t eliminate any more common root from them other than 1.

For any fraction $\dfrac{p}{q}$, we first find the G.C.D of the denominator and the numerator. If it’s 1 then it’s already in its simplified form and if the G.C.D of the denominator and the numerator is any other number d then we need to divide the denominator and the numerator with d and get the simplified fraction form as $\dfrac{{}^{p}/{}_{d}}{{}^{q}/{}_{d}}$.

For our given fraction $\dfrac{13}{2}$, the G.C.D of the denominator and the numerator is 1.

Therefore, this is the most simplified form of the fraction.

**Therefore, the solution of $5=2x-8$ is $\dfrac{13}{2}$.**

**Note:**The process of simplification comes from the G.C.D of the denominator and the numerator. In the case of a linear equation, the number of solutions in every case will be 1. The simplified form will be equal to the value of $x$.
