The formula is g = 3/4p + 7 I have gotten up to g - 7 - 3 =/4p but what do I do with the leftover division sign?

Do I multiply or divide here? From there I got it to 4pg - 28p - 12p = 16p by multiplying by 4 on both sides. Then I was going to divide by 16p on both sides to get p alone, however, something tells me this is wrong 😅

Can someone please help me solve this.

4g = 3/p + 28

4g - 28 = 3/p

(4g - 28)/3 = 1/p

3/(4g -28) = p

Do I

__multiply or divide__here? From there I got it to

**that**just make things out of hand. I would suggest to start from the original formula and use

__Those (or both)__to get your answer. Hint: 4.

*Hold on... I'm a bit confused. Is it 3/4p as in 3 over 4p, or 3 over 4 multiplied by p?*

Hiya this is how it was written on the PowerPoint so I am not sure myself

g = 3/4p + 7

4g = 3/p + 28

4g - 28 = 3/p

(4g - 28)/3 = 1/p

3/(4g -28) = p

**thrwawy**)g = 3/4p + 7

4g = 3/p + 28

4g - 28 = 3/p

(4g - 28)/3 = 1/p

3/(4g -28) = p

Thanks

Hiya why did you put brackets in? And on the second row where you multiply both sides by 4, why didn't you multiply 3/p by 4?

Thanks

On the second line, the 3/p

*was*divided by 4

multiplied by 4 is

this is the same as as the 4's cancel out

the brackets are put in because you're dividing both the 4g and the -28 by 3.

You got it close. But

Hello, thrwawy, as the OP needs help, I would suggest not to give the answer directly. We should be the one who guides them to the correct answer and not do all the work for them as to encourage the OP's learning. Thank you.
