# How do you solve p-1.34=-11.8?

May 2, 2018

$p = - 10.46$

#### Explanation:

To solve for the variable $p$, we have to make it alone. To do so, we add $\textcolor{b l u e}{1.34}$ to both sides of the equation:
$p - 1.34 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{+ \quad 1.34} = - 11.8 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{+ \quad 1.34}$

So the answer is:
$p = - 10.46$

Hope this helps!
