2000-2.5P=1050

2000-1050=2.5P

950/2.5=P

P=380

Simplifying

1050 = 2000 + -2.5(P)

Solving

1050 = 2000 + -2.5P

Solving for variable 'P'.

Move all terms containing P to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add '2.5P' to each side of the equation.

1050 + 2.5P = 2000 + -2.5P + 2.5P

Combine like terms: -2.5P + 2.5P = 0.0

1050 + 2.5P = 2000 + 0.0

1050 + 2.5P = 2000

Add '-1050' to each side of the equation.

1050 + -1050 + 2.5P = 2000 + -1050

Combine like terms: 1050 + -1050 = 0

0 + 2.5P = 2000 + -1050

2.5P = 2000 + -1050

Combine like terms: 2000 + -1050 = 950

2.5P = 950

Divide each side by '2.5'.

P = 380

Simplifying

P = 380
