    I think u will have to use the m=0, because u were asked to factor out m from the expression

    Uncle, take a luk at the question again, u wer asked to 'factor m from' the expresion, so m must not be missin from it but rather ,it must stand out in the expression

    so is it m = 0 or n=-8m?

    In that case , 5mn=3m => 5mn-3m=0 m(5n-3)=0 m=0/(5n-3) m=0

    haha well factoring the m out is still factoring it and whateve process we use we end up with m=0
