If i'm collecting like terms from this:
[HTML] 12 - 2p p
________ - _________
3 3
[/HTML]
How would i go about it?
Thanks
Could you please try and rewrite this problem using LaTeX?
EDIT: Nevermind, you wrote it more legibly.
$\displaystyle \frac{1}{3} \left( 12 - 2p - p \right) $
$\displaystyle \frac{1}{3} $ seems to be the only common factor there.
And then you could simplify that if you like. This problem can be simplified to $\displaystyle 4 - p $.
