How do I figure out problems like
52 = p +(-41)?
I tried doing the steps but I got -11, which is wrong.
Can someone walk me through the steps?

  • pre algebra -

    52= P-41

    SO move P to the other side making it +41.

    P= 91

  • pre algebra -

    These are my steps:

    52 = p + (-41)
    52 = p - 41 (same thing)
    52(+41) = p - 41 (+ 41)
    93 = p
