$p = - 8.3$

#### Explanation:

put the variables on side and the constant on other side .

$- 6.1 = p + 2.2$

$p = - 6.1 - 2.2 = - 8.3$

$p = - 8.3$

to check your answer offset the value that you get in the main equation ,must the left side equal the right side

$- 6.1 = p + 2.2$

$- 6.1 = 2.2 - 8.3$

$- 6.1 = - 6.1$

since the left side equal the right side that your solution is true.
