3p/8 + 7p/16 - 3/4 = 1/4 + p/16 + 1/2

- Solving Equations with variable on Both Sides -
**Alex**, Saturday, May 3, 2008 at 9:52pmmove all the ones with p to one side and the other fractions to the other so it becomes

3p/8 + 7p/16 - p/16 = 1/4 + 1/2 + 3/4

then change 3p/8 to 6p/16 by multiplying by 2 and 1/2 to 2/4 the same way.

6p/16 + 7p/16 - p/16 = 1/4 + 2/4 + 3/4

add both sides up

12p/16 = 6/4

isolate p

p = (6/4) x (16/12)

p = 2
