is it (p/0.3)1 = 5? or p/(0.31) = 5 if its the first one, i am sure. you just multiply everything by 0.3 then solve.

well i just put the parentheses to split up the numbers, but if the are no parentheses, then it looks like my first answer is right.

hmmm then why did I keep getting 1.2? I know 1.2 is wrong but I can't get anything else...

you must have subtracted o.3 from each side, but you had to add. because when you multiply everything by 0.3, you end up with p0.3=1.5. then you add o.3 to each side, not subtract. so the answer would be 1.8.

you are supposed to add one to each side, not subtract.
