    distribute, so -5+3m = -2m -5+6 = 1 (-2m+1) -3+4m = 1m -3-2 = -5 (1m-5)

    when you distribute to get rid of the parenthesis you multiply each term inside by what is outside the parenthesis

    the equation is the same left side = right side combine like terms leave the terms with variable on one side and the constants on the other. this is an equation whatever you do to one side also do to the other to maintain the balance.
