expression pyramids with 'p'

these tasks extend the idea of 'p' being the length of a plank
practice in combining and subtracting expressions

easier start, but similar to expression pyramids with an 'n'

establish that the outer two bottom expressions must sum to a multiple of 8

students can be asked to form their own similar pyramid i.e. with a multiple of 'p' at the top
