    once again u got part right. but when u multiplied 11 times 1 than it should be 11. so it should be 11m+11

    I'm sorry but both 11m+ 11 and 11m + 12 are incorrect. One should follow BODMAS ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_operations) when solving such equations. BODMAS suggests that one should solve BRACKET first. so: 5 + 6(m+ 1) => 5 + 6m + 6 (solving the bracket) => 11 +6m
