    5x-3=12x+11 First subtract 5x from both sides: -3 = 7x + 11 Subtract 11 from both sides: -14 = 7x Divide by 7 on both sides: x = -2

    you multiply: -7(5p) + -7(3) and that gives you an equation as: -35p + -21-49 = 6p +6

    so at the end your equation is -76 =9p and then you get the answer by dividing 9p to -76
