How do you do these probelms?
1. Subtract 11 from both sides, to get rid of the 11. Then solve for p.
Then divide by 7 to get rid of the 7.
Does that help?
Ms. Sue's response is more clear than mine. My computer didn't put some numbers in the right spot.
7p = -31 - 11
7p = -42
p = -6
Follow this pattern for solving the rest of the problems.
