    ok, like last time, you have to treat this like if you were solving for a normal equation.

    2p>10 p>10/5 p>2 Instead of dividing by 5, you divide by 2...and the result is p>5. And you take 3P to the other side of the equation because you want to get the variables alone on one side of the inequality sign, and subtracting 3P is easier than subtracting 5P and getting a negative number.
