    you're really not supposed to divide by a variable but i think thats the only way to do this.

    if no solution is an option that would be your answer because even if you divide by n first then divide by m your m's will cancel to out to a 1. i think.

    \[mn = 3m-2 \iff m(3-n) = 2 \iff m = \frac{2}{3-n}\]
