## cupcake_queen 3 years ago -15=6p+15-10p

1. surdawi

-15=6p+15-10p -15 -15 = 6p-10p -30=-4p p=30/4

2. cupcake_queen

it equals -1/4

3. surdawi

how? it is 30/4=15/4

4. sue101

Combine like terms. -15 = 6p + 15 - 10p So 6p - 10p = -4p -15 = -4p + 15 Now you will subtract 15 from both sides -15 - 15 ---------------- -30 = -4p Divide both sides by both sides. /-4 /-4 ------------------ p = -30/-4 then simplify

5. cupcake_queen

but 7.5 dont equal -1/4

6. sue101

that's if you wanted it in decimal form

7. surdawi

15/4=7.5

8. surdawi

-1/4 cant be

9. sue101

so to simplify what number goes into 30 and 4 evenly

10. cupcake_queen

11. surdawi

unless you have a typo in the question

12. sue101
