Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Step 1. Combine all like terms where they are. In your case, combine all like terms on the right side \(9p15=p+5p2p\) \(9p15=4p\) There are no like terms on the left side, so step 1 is done. Ok so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Step 2. Now we want all terms with p on the left side, so we subtract 4p from both sides. \(~~~9p15=~~~4p\) \(4p ~~~~~~~~~~~~~4p\) We get: \(5p  15 = 0\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Step 3. Now we want the number (with no variable) on the right side, so we add 15 to both sides. \(~~~5p  15 ~~~= ~~~~~~0\) \(~~~~~~~~+15~~~~~~~+15\) We get: \(5p = 15\) Ok so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Correct. Step 4. We want p alone, so we divide both sides by 5 \(\dfrac{5p}{5} = \dfrac{15}{5} \) \(p = 3\)
