    I started to solve, I combined to find 11/6p=6, but do I divide 11/6 by 6 IDK

    well, you need the p's on one side of the = sign and the number on the other so you need to do something that will move, say, the \(\frac{2}{3}p\) from LHS to RHS of = sign

    I think I need to divide 11/6 by the reciprocal or something?

    anyways you have \(\frac{2}{3} p+ 6 = \frac{7}{6} p\) you do: \(\frac{2}{3} p - \frac{2}{3} p + 6 = \frac{7}{6} p - \frac{2}{3} p\) to get the p's on the same side
