Answer:

#p =+-6#

Explanation:

Solve #p^2 = 36#

If you want to solve #p^2 = 36# you need to get rid of the square.

The opposite operation to squaring, is finding the square root.

Find the square root of both sides.
Remember a square has two possible roots - a positive root and a negative root.

#p^2 = +-sqrt36#

#p = +-6#
