please explain the method of solving:

37 - p = 28 + 4p

asked by MarySue
  1. 37 - p = 28 + 4p

    We need to get the known quantities on one side of the equation and the unknowns on the other.

    Add p to both sides. Subtract 28 from both sides.

    37 - 28 = 5p

    9 = 5p

    9/5 = p

    1 4/5 = p
