# How do you solve (5m)/6=10/12?

Dec 23, 2016

$m = 1$

#### Explanation:

color(green)((5m)/6color(red)(xx1) = 10/12

color(green)((5m)/6color(red)(xx2/2) = 10/12

$\frac{10 m}{12} = \frac{10}{12}$

Now that the bottom numbers (denominators) are the same we may consider just the top numbers (numerators)

$\implies 10 m = 10$

$m = 1$
