#### Explanation:

Given

Multiply both sides by

#=>(2m^2)/m=m-34#

On the left we have

#=>2m=m-34#

Subtract

#=>2m-m=-34#

#=>m=-34#

Check your answer by plugging in

#1/(-34)=(-34-34)/(2*(-34)^2#

#=>-1/(34)=(-68)/(2312)#

Simplify the fraction on the right by dividing numerator and denominator by

#=>-1/(34)=-1/(34)#

Our answer is correct.
