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
So -5*3m =-15m And -5*6=-30
now do the same for the right side
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.
no look again you do not have that -5 and -3 you used them
How do you do the drawing thing
directly below this reply box in the middle click on draw
I like to use the pencil A is for text typing etc
I dont have the option
then click on insert at the bottom right then post regular
Nope Not there either
you don't see the word "draw" below the reply box ?
I don't know why it has always been here for about a year. I am using Chrome. Maybe contact one of the Moderators or the "contact Us" for assistance , I don't know .
ok what happens when you click the pencil located on the right side of my response?
let me finish the problem and always ask about anything you are not sure about
start here REPOST 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.
good practice check your answer in the original because it is very easy to make arithmetic errors
left = right and therefore yes m = -12
any questions about this?
