Im guessing it's 1? @sweetburger

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

what does 2(m+1)=?
anonymous
  • anonymous
4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Since m is 1, it would be 1+1, then 2 x 2=4?
sweetburger
  • sweetburger
alright so well break this up like this 2xm = 2m and 2x1= 2 so it becomes 2m+2
sweetburger
  • sweetburger
wait where did u think m=1?
anonymous
  • anonymous
It was a guess
sweetburger
  • sweetburger
well we can solve for m so dont guess yet
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh ok lol
sweetburger
  • sweetburger
my bad typo
sweetburger
  • sweetburger
4m+2m+2 = 9m+5
sweetburger
  • sweetburger
try to get all of the m's by themselves by add and subtracting them
anonymous
  • anonymous
next step is to divide right?
sweetburger
  • sweetburger
nope, no division yet
sweetburger
  • sweetburger
we still have to get all the m's together on one side of the equation
anonymous
  • anonymous
Subtract?
sweetburger
  • sweetburger
show me what you think you should do next and then i will correct you if you make a mistake
anonymous

Honestly, I got no clue :(
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's either add or subtract lol
sweetburger
  • sweetburger
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=?
sweetburger
  • sweetburger
making sense?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah
anonymous
  • anonymous
Soo m= -1
sweetburger
  • sweetburger
ya
