# How do you solve 3/8m + 9 = 18?

Jul 13, 2016

$m = 24$

#### Explanation:

Isolate the term with the variable.

$\frac{3}{8} m + 9 = 18$
$\frac{3}{8} m = 18 - 9$

$\frac{3}{8} m = 9 \text{ now" color(magenta)(xx 8/3)" on both sides}$

$\textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{\frac{8}{3} \times} \frac{3}{8} m = 9 \textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{\times \frac{8}{3}}$

$m = 24$
