The way you put it, there's no multiplication... so I don't know where you get 3p and 2p... maybe you want to revise your original problem by addiing in the parentheses.
Anyway, by the way you put it... it should be:
pp1/22/3=1 (combine liketerms)
03/64/6=1 (common denominator)
7/6=1 (subtraction)
... and you end up with a false statement, yep, you need to revise your problem so people can read it correctly.
