...............(eq1)

.............(eq2)

Rearrange eq2 to make q the subject:

__Spoiler__:

.........................(eq 2.1)

**Sub the RHS of (eq 2.1) wherever***q*appears in (eq1):

**Sub the value of p into (eq2):**

**Test these values**

. This is correct

. This is correct

**Your equation now shows**

so you should be able to find by direct substitution.
