Okay, so then we're basically working backwards. How do you think they got 3p from a 3?

Ooooh! I see! It's p - 2q, correct?

But this is a proof, so I have to show each step. I just did that by reasoning... What would the steps be? I'll give you a medal already tho. :) Thank you!

Step 1: Divide 3p by 3. This will give you 3p - 6q = 3(p?__) Step 2: DIvide -6q by 3. This will give you 3p - 6q = 3(p - 2q)

Does that clear it up for you? So if you have this problem again, you just divide by the number outside of the parentheses since we're doing the opposite of distributing. (Dividing.)
