We are given: $15=-6-\left(3\frac{p}{8}\right)$
Add 6 to both sides: $15+6=-6-\left(3\frac{p}{8}\right)+6$
$21=-\left(3\frac{p}{8}\right)$
Multiply both sides by 8: $21\left(8\right)=-\left(3\frac{p}{8}\right)\left(8\right)$
$168=-3p$
Divide both sides by −3: $\frac{168}{-3}=-3\frac{p}{-3}$
$-56=p$
or
$p=-56$
