    5m + 3n + p - 5p + 3n + 2n -m Rearrange them 5m - m + 3n + 3n + 2n +p -5p = 4m +8n -4p = 4(m+2n-p)

    5m + 2n = 3 -5m +3n = 7 -------------------- 5n = 10 n = 10/5 n = 2 substitute the value of n in equation 1 5m + 2n = 3 5m + 2(2) = 3 5m + 4 = 3 5m = 3 - 4 5m = -1 m = -1/5 hence, n = 2 and m = -1/5
