Simplify \(((5p+1)-2p\cdot4)(3)+(4-1\div3)(6p-9)\) to a much simpler expression of the form \(ap-b \) , where \(a\) and \(b\) are positive integers.

We can first distribute: 

 

(5p)(3)+3+(-8p)(3)+24p-36+(-1/3)(6p)+3

=15p+3-24p+24p-36+-2p+3 ---Combine like terms---

=13p+3-36+3

=13p-30

 

Hope this helped!
