How to solve A=p+prt?

I have a problem to do where I need to solve for "p", in the equation A=p+prt. I'm not asking someone to do my homework for me, I just have no idea how to start this. If someone could tell me the first step in how to solve this I might be able to take it from there.

Scroll down about two-thirds of the way down this page and read the example that explains "the trick". That trick is what you need to apply here.
