    First step to this is distributing the 2(m+1) meaning you multiply 2 by m and 1

    Since m is 1, it would be 1+1, then 2 x 2=4?

    alright so well break this up like this 2xm = 2m and 2x1= 2 so it becomes 2m+2

    4m+2m+2 = 9m+5

    try to get all of the m's by themselves by add and subtracting them

    next step is to divide right?

    we still have to get all the m's together on one side of the equation

    alright ill show you 4m +2m +2 = 9m +5 so im going to add 4m+2m and get 6m+2=9m+5 now im going to subtract 6m from both sides of the equation leaving me with 2=3m+5. Now i am going to get m by itself by subtracting 5 from both sides of the equation giving us 3m=-3 so what does m=?
