check my work to see if i did this right?
a + 5 = 5a + 5
Add 5a to both a's
4a + 5 = 5
Subtract 5 from both 5's
4a = 0
Divide 4a to both sides
a = 0 i think
did i do this right? please help me. i really want to know how to do these. i will give a medal for the best response... :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yay! thank you so much!! could you help me with this one, also? i promise it will be the last one... p  1 = 5p + 3p  8 p  1 = 8p  8 Subtract p to both sides 1 = 7p  8 Add 8 to both sides 7 = 7p Divide 7p to both sides p = 1 im sorry. i do online school and algebra is really hard for me, and now we are learning the two side equations. i just have a lot of trouble with it.
