Sorry, lets see if the formatting this time is better
Get all of the P's on one side and everything else on the other
(3/2)p  14 = p + 13
+ 14 + 14
(3/2)p = p + 27
p p
Side work: (3/2)p  p = (3/2)p  (2/2)p = (1/2)p (1/2)p = 27
In order to get rid of a fraction muliplied by your varriable, multiply by the fractions reciprocal
(2/1)x(1/2)p = 27x(2/1)
p = 54
