    Hey there :) Multiplication is `commutative`: It doesn't matter which order we multiply in. So that means that \(\Large\rm 7\times5\times12\) is the same as \(\Large\rm 12\times5\times7\)

    Do you see something similar happening in your problem? If \(\Large\rm 4\times11\times\color{orangered}{p}\) is the same as \(\Large\rm 11\times4\times\color{orangered}{5}\), then what is our p value?
