Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no. just change \[ \frac{p^{5}}{1} = \frac{1}{p^5} \] notice you flip it upside down and change 5 to +5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1your problem is now \[ \frac{1}{p^5}= \frac{1}{243} \] you can flip both sides, \[ p^5 = 243\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you know p*p*p*p*p is 243 to find p we could try factoring 243 or we can try guessing p for example if p=1 we get 1*1*1*1*1= 1 which is too small also if p=2 we would get 2*2*2*2*2= 32 still too small what about p=3?
