# How do you solve 3= \frac { 3} { 4} ( p - 1)?

p=5

#### Explanation:

$3 = \frac{3}{4} \left(p - 1\right)$

Multiply expressions on both sides of the equation by 4.

$12 = 3 \left(p - 1\right)$

Expand the expression to the right.

$12 = 3 p - 3$

Add 3 to both sides of the equation.

$3 p = 15$

Divide expressions on both sides of the equation by 3.

$p = 5$
