$-\frac{24}{5} \gt p$

Work Step by Step

$-5 >p - \frac{1}{5}$ To get p by alone on one side add $\frac{1}{5}$ to both sides: $-5 +( \frac{1}{5}) >p - \frac{1}{5}+ (\frac{1}{5})$ To add $\frac{1}{5}$ to -5 we have to make -5 an improper fraction: $-\frac{25}{5} + \frac{1}{5} > p$ Simplify: $-\frac{24}{5} \gt p$
