Answer

p=1

Work Step by Step

We add p on both sides to obtain that 4p+1=5. We need to get the p alone, so we cancel out the addition by subtracting 1 on both sides. This leaves us with the equation 4p=4. We cancel out multiplication by using division, so we divide both sides of the equation by 4 to get that p=1.
