Chapter 9 - Basic Algebra - 9.7 Solving Equations with Several Steps - 9.7 Exercises: 10

Answer

$p=2$

Work Step by Step

We are given the equation $5=-10p+25$. In order to solve, we can first subtract 25 from both sides. $5-25=-10p+25-25$ $-20=-10p$ Divide both sides by -10. $\frac{-20}{-10}=\frac{-10p}{-10}$ $p=2$
