Step 1: Get rid of parenthesis via the distributive property.
Step 2: Get rid of fractions by multiplying everything by the LCM of all the denominators
Step 3: Get everything (terms) with the variable we
are solving for on one side and everything else on the
In the example above, we need to solve for p so we get everything with p on one side:
a = xp - abp
Step 5: Divide by what is in front of or behind (or
both) the variable we are solving for. In the example
