isolate the variable m

#### Explanation:

To get the variable by itself work backwards.
The opposite of + 9,2 is - 9.2 so subtract 9.2 from both sides.

$16.33 - 9.2 = m + 9.2 - 9.2$

$7.23 = m$

$m = 7.13$

#### Explanation:

To solve for $m$, all we need to do is isolate the variable by subtracting $9.2$ from both sides of the equation:

$16.33 - 9.2 = m + 9.2 - 9.2$

$7.13 = m$
