Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Welcome to OpenStudy @fkasjf ! :D I presume the question requires you to solve the equation for p. So, to do this, we firstly need to rearrange our equation such that all the 'terms' with p are on one side of the '=' sign and all the numbers are on the other. 2 = 6p  8  5p To remove the '8' from the righthand side of the equation, we can add on 8 to both sides (i.e. do the same thing to both sides). In doing this, we are not changing our equation, just writing it in a different way. So: 2 + 8 = 6p  8  5p + 8 2 + 8 = 6p  5p + (8 + 8) 2 + 8 = 6p  5p Once we have done that, we can add the two numbers together on the lefthand side and subtract the two p terms from one another on the other side. This will leave us with just 'p' on one side and a single number on the other, which is the solution to our original equation!
