# How do you solve \frac { 2p - 28} { 4} = 4?

Dec 2, 2017

Your answer is: $p = 22$

#### Explanation:

The first step is to get rid of the fraction by multiplying $4$ on both sides. You get $2 p - 28 = 16$. From there you add $28$ on both side and receive $2 p = 44$. Finally, you divide $2$ by both sides and get $p = 22$.

The steps in the solution are below:
$p = 22$

#### Explanation:

Given: $\frac{2 p - 28}{4} = 4$

$\left(2 p - 28\right) = 4 \cdot 4 \to$ multiply everything by $4$

$2 p - 28 + 28 = 16 + 28 \to$ add $28$ to everything

$2 p = 44 \to$ divide everything by $2$

$p = \frac{44}{2}$

$p = 22$
