Answer:

#m = 5#

Explanation:

#16+9m=61#   Solve for #m#

1) Subtract #16# from both sides to isolate the #9m# term
After you have subtracted, you will have this:
#9m = 45#

2) Divide both sides by #9# to isolate #m#
After dividing, you will end up with this:
#m = 5# #larr# answer

Check

Sub #5# back in to the original equation to see if it is still true.

#16+9 m=61#
#16 + 9(5)# should equal #61#

1) Clear the parentheses by multiplying #9 xx 5#
After you have multiplied, you will get this:
#16 + 45# should equal #61#

2) Combine like terms
After you have added #16 + 45#, you will end up with this:
#61 = 61#
