Mandy I got M + 1/6 = P - 1/3
M = P -1/3 - 1/6
M = P - 1/2.

which does not match any of the choices !

I solved M+6/36=p-7/21
I found M= 12/7p-18 Which does not also match any answers
By guessing i would go for E
The right answer is E But i don't have 7/12

Correct question should be (M+6)/36 =(P-7)/21.
