Solving for variable 'p'. Move all terms containing p to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '-2p' to each side of the equation. -12 + -6p + -2p = 12 + 2p + -2p Combine like terms: -6p + -2p = -8p -12 + -8p = 12 + 2p + -2p Combine like terms: 2p + -2p = 0 -12 + -8p = 12 + 0 -12 + -8p = 12 Add '12' to each side of the equation. -12 + 12 + -8p = 12 + 12 Combine like terms: -12 + 12 = 0 0 + -8p = 12 + 12 -8p = 12 + 12 Combine like terms: 12 + 12 = 24 -8p = 24 Divide each side by '-8'. p = -3 Simplifying p = -3
