## natth88 Group Title How do you solve this proportion 2m - 1 / 3 = m + 1 / 2 2 years ago 2 years ago

1. Calcmathlete Group Title

You would cross multiply. $\frac{2m - 1}{3} = \frac{m + 1}{2} \implies 2(2m - 1) = 3(m + 1)$Can you solve from here?

2. natth88 Group Title

Would you just use the distributive property

3. Calcmathlete Group Title

Yes. You would distribute the 2 and 3 and then solve for m.

4. natth88 Group Title

I forgot but would you multiply the 2 x -1 or no

5. natth88 Group Title

Would it be m = 5

6. Calcmathlete Group Title

Yup :)

7. natth88 Group Title

So 5 is right

8. Calcmathlete Group Title

$\huge \textbf{Yes, m = 5 :)}$
