# How do you solve #3p-1=5(p-1)-2(7-2p)#?

##### 1 Answer

See answer in solution below.

#### Explanation:

To start, it's a good idea to being by distributing the numbers outside of both of the parentheses to get individual terms

#3p - 1 = 5p - 5 -14 + 4p#

Then we combine like terms on both sides to get

#3p - 1 = 9p - 19#

Then we want to get the terms with

#18 = 6p#

Then to get

#3 = p#

And that is the final answer.
