after you add 4 to both sides, you can multiply both sides by 8...

if you have 8/8... it will equal to 1... so by multiplying both sides by 8 you get to get rid of the denominator in that equation

if that makes 1 would i get 7/1p

yeah, just to clarify.. is the p on the bottom of the fraction?

i'm guessing that the equation was (7/8) p - 4 = 10.. then you'd add 4 to both sides and get (7/8) p = 14.. then multiply both sides by 8.. you'd get 7p = 112... and lastly to solve for p divide both sides by 7... p = 16
