You must mean

p/(p-3) = R

cross-multiply

Rp - 3R = p

Rp - p = 3R

p(R-1) = 3R

p = 3R/(R-1)

for the second, multiply each term by R, rearrange and factor in a similar way.

Let me know what you get.

So for the second one, I multiplied each term by R

aR= R- 1

but then I got stuck after that... sorry

you are looking for R, so get the R's to one side

aR - R = -1

factor out the R

R(a-1) = -1

divide both sides by a-1

R = -1/(a-1)
