    \[\frac{2}{3}p+6=\frac{7}{6}p\]?

    ok that was wrong, sorry multiply both sides by 6 and start with \[4p+36=7p\] now it takes only two steps

    Bring the 4p over to the 7p by subtracting both sides by 4p.

    Yes on the right side it's 3p. Now the equation looks like this:\[36=3p\]

    Divide both sides by 3 so you can get p by itself.

    Well it would equal 1p since the p was never cancelled out when you divided by 3. Now divide 36 by 3.
