Solve the equation:

(-3/p+2) = (-8/p-3)

Can someone please show me how to do this? I have a whole page of these to do but I don't really know what to do. If I could just see one done, I'm sure I can figure the rest out. Thank you.

I bet you mean:
-3/(p+2) = -8/(p-3)
multiply both sides by the LCD [(p+2)(p-3)]
[(p+2)(p-3)](-3)/(p+2) =[(p+2)(p-3 )](-8)/(p-3)

(p-3)(-3) = (p+2)(-8)

I bet you can take it from there.
