    First, you distribute the -2 over, resulting in" \[-2m + 60\] Next, isolate m by adding 2m to both sides, resulting in \[60 = -4m\] After this, divide by -4 on both sides and you should have your answer for m. Check your work by plugging in your answer for m into the original equation and seeing if it balances out.

    First you distribute, then you solve it like any other equation.
