A student is attempting to solve a multi-step equation. Sample mathematical work is shown below. Which statement best applies to the sample mathematical work? Given the equation -m/2+8=-1/3 I must solve for m. I first subtract 8 from both sides, which gives me -m/2=-25/3 I then multiply both sides by –2, which gives me the final answer of m=50/3
