# How do you solve 4p - 1+ 3p = 7p - 4?

Jun 7, 2018

No solutions: $- 1 \ne - 4$

#### Explanation:

We can start by simplifying the terms on the left to get

$7 p - 1 = 7 p - 4$

We will just be subtracting $7 p$ from both sides, or at this point we can essentially cancel them.

We're left with

$- 1 = - 4$

Which is obviously not true, thus this equation has no solutions.

Hope this helps!
