#### Explanation:

$\textcolor{g r e e n}{5} \times \left(m + 3\right) = 45$

Here , $\textcolor{g r e e n}{5}$ is multiplied with both terms within the bracket.

$\textcolor{g r e e n}{5} \times \left(m\right) + \textcolor{g r e e n}{5} \times \left(3\right) = 45$

$5 m + 15 = 45$

$5 m = 45 - 15$

$5 m = 30$

$m = \frac{30}{5}$
