Answer:

#p=6#

Explanation:

Let's combine the terms on the left to get:

#7p+37=79#

We can subtract #37# from both sides to get:

#7p=42#

Finally, we can divide both sides by #7# to get:

#p=6#

First add like terms...

#3p+4p+37=79#

#7p+37=79#

Next subtract 37 from both sides.

#(7p+37)-37=79-37#

#7p=42#

Divide both sides by seven...

#(7p)/7=42/7#

#p=6#
