# How do you solve #3( 2p + 19) + 2p = 8p#?

##### 2 Answers

p does not exist.

#### Explanation:

This is the step-by-step procedure of solving for p:

(ignore this if you are familiar with algebra)

Expand the the bracket:

3*2p = 6p
3*19 = 57

Then put it altogether

6p + 57 + 2p = 8p.

Put all values with p to one side of the equation

6p - 8p+ 2p = -57

and as 57 is positive, changing it to the other side with make it negative, the same applies to 8p.

Then simplify:

0 = -57.

As this is false, p does not exist.

It would not be within the field of real numbers.
