    Hint: either distribute to get 4j - 28 = 12 or divide both sides by 4 to get j - 7 = 3

    or you can combine 21-8 to get 13 this gives you 8p+13 = 29 then you can subtract 13 from both sides to get 8p = 29-13

    Nope. Remember, when you take from one side, you must take from the side with the x. So instead, take the 7.5 from the side with the x. :o)

    For the original equation, you're first going to cross multiply. So, a-5 times the 5, and then the 2a-3 times the 10.
