#### Explanation:

**To isolate #m#, you must get rid of its coefficient, #3/7#. To undo a fraction, multiply by its reciprocal. To keep the equation balanced, you must multiply BOTH sides by the reciprocal.**

**Cancel out the coefficient, but remember to leave the negative because it didn't get cancelled.**

**Multiply out the right side.**

**Multiply by #-1# on both sides to undo the negative and isolate #m#.**

**Simplify.**
