9. First you add the -1/8p to the other side which makes it positve then you add 1/8p+3/8p which is 0.5p or 4/8p then divide -24 by 0.5p then you get p =-48

First, Simplify 1/8p to p/8 which is going to be like this -24-p/8=3/8p. Second, Simplify 3/8p to 3p/8 which is going to be like this -24-p/8=3p/8. Third, Multiply both sides by 8 which is going to be like this -192-p=3p. Then add P to both sides which is like this -192=3p+p. Then simplify 3p+p to 4p which is this -192=4p. Now divide both sides by 4 like this - 192/4=p. Then simplify 192/4 to 48 which is like this -48=p. Then switch sides and the final answer is p=-48
