```Simplifying
p2 + 21p + -49 = 21p

Reorder the terms:
-49 + 21p + p2 = 21p

Add '-21p' to each side of the equation.
-49 + 21p + -21p + p2 = 21p + -21p

Combine like terms: 21p + -21p = 0
-49 + 0 + p2 = 21p + -21p
-49 + p2 = 21p + -21p

Combine like terms: 21p + -21p = 0
-49 + p2 = 0

Solving
-49 + p2 = 0

Solving for variable 'p'.

Move all terms containing p to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add '49' to each side of the equation.
-49 + 49 + p2 = 0 + 49

Combine like terms: -49 + 49 = 0
0 + p2 = 0 + 49
p2 = 0 + 49

Combine like terms: 0 + 49 = 49
p2 = 49

Simplifying
p2 = 49

Reorder the terms:
-49 + p2 = 49 + -49

Combine like terms: 49 + -49 = 0
-49 + p2 = 0

Factor a difference between two squares.
(7 + p)(-7 + p) = 0

Subproblem 1Set the factor '(7 + p)' equal to zero and attempt to solve:

Simplifying
7 + p = 0

Solving
7 + p = 0

Move all terms containing p to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add '-7' to each side of the equation.
7 + -7 + p = 0 + -7

Combine like terms: 7 + -7 = 0
0 + p = 0 + -7
p = 0 + -7

Combine like terms: 0 + -7 = -7
p = -7

Simplifying
p = -7
Subproblem 2Set the factor '(-7 + p)' equal to zero and attempt to solve:

Simplifying
-7 + p = 0

Solving
-7 + p = 0

Move all terms containing p to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add '7' to each side of the equation.
-7 + 7 + p = 0 + 7

Combine like terms: -7 + 7 = 0
0 + p = 0 + 7
p = 0 + 7

Combine like terms: 0 + 7 = 7
p = 7

Simplifying
p = 7Solutionp = {-7, 7}```
