8 - 3 (p-4) = 2p
i got:

8 - 3p - 12 = 2p

• algebra check please -

You're welcome.

8 - 3 (p-4) = 2p

8 - 3p + 12 = 2p

20 = 2p + 3p

20 = 5p

4 = p

You seem to be forgetting that multiplying two negative numbers produces a positive number. Watch your signs!

wait i think i got it:
8 - 3p -12 = 2p
12 + 8 = 20
20 - 3p = 2p
+3p = +3p
20 = 5p

5 5

4 = p is that right
