Mar 10, 2018

$p = - 5$

#### Explanation:

Move variable to the left, in this case, $- 6 p$

$- 8 p + 6 p = 10$

Collect the like terms

$- 2 p = 10$

Divide both sides by $- 2$

$p = - 5$

$p = - 5$

#### Explanation:

Shift the p on the right to the left
$- 8 p + 6 p = 10$
$- 2 p = 10$
Then divide both sides by -2
$\frac{- 2 p}{-} 2 = \frac{10}{-} 2$
$p = - 5$
