You change the form of the equation to Y=2x+2-10 or, Y=2x-8.

Then you press Y= and then type in 2x-8.  This is the equation of a
line which you can then press 2nd (yellow key) and press calc and find
zero, value, etc.   You can also use the solver but I suggest you use
the book that comes along with the TI-83 to use that.  

You want the value of x when y=zero.  That is the same way you solve
it when you use pencil and paper.    

If you don't have a book, I suggest you try to buy one from ebay or
