Answer

p = -9

Work Step by Step

4p + 2 = 3p - 7 First, you need to get the variable (p) on one side of the equation, so subtract 3p from both sides of the equation. This will remove the p from the right side of the equation. 4p + 2 - 3p = 3p - 7 - 3p Simplify to get this: 1p + 2 = -7 Subtract 2 from each side. 1p + 2 - 2 = -7 - 2 Simplify to get: 1p = -9 Simplify to p = -9
