    first, we will solve for m 5m - 3 > 8m + 21 -- subtract 5m from both sides -3 > 8m - 5m + 21 -- subtract 21 from both sides -21 - 3 > 8m - 5m -- combine like terms -24 > 3m -- divide both sides by 3 -24/3 > m - 8 > m or m < -8 so if m is less then -8....then the greatest possible value for m is -7
