To solve an equation for a variable, you need to use inverse operations to isolate the variable.
For the equation 5=p4, p is being divided by 4.
To isolate p, you must then use the inverse operation of dividing by 4, which is multiplying by 4.
Multiplying both sides of the equation by 4 then gives:
5=p4 Given equation.
4×5=p4 Multiply both sides by 4.
20=p Simplify
The solution of the equation is then p=4.
