## natth88 How do you solve this proportion 2m - 1 / 3 = m + 1 / 2 one year ago one year ago

• This Question is Closed
1. Calcmathlete

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

Would you just use the distributive property

3. Calcmathlete

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

4. natth88

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

5. natth88

Would it be m = 5

6. Calcmathlete

Yup :)

7. natth88

So 5 is right

8. Calcmathlete

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