### Is NaCl H2O a complete and balanced chemical equation?

No, NaCl H2O is not a chemical equation. An equation must have
an equal sign. And even if you put an equal sign into those terms,
it is not true that NaCl = H2O, so that would be a false equation,
not a complete and balanced equation. You are not even close to
having that.

### What makes two terms like terms?

Two terms are "like terms" when they are the same. For example,
in the equation:
14x2 + 9x - 3 = 149x
9x and 149x are like terms because they both have "x" in them.
Note that x2 is not a like term to x.
You can add and subtract like terms, but not unlike terms. So
the above equation could be reduced to:
14x2 - 3 = 140x
by subtracting 9x from both sides.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Algebra

### What is the correct set up to solve the following equation 92p equals 27 p-1?

The basic idea you'd want to start with here is called "combining
like terms". Your goal is to have only one term in your equation
that involves p, and only one term in your equation that doesn't
involve p.
92p = 27p-1
Subtract 27p from both sides:
92p-27p = -1
65p = -1
You can now divide both sides by 65 to "isolate the
variable":
p = -1/65...
