Answer:

No solutions

Explanation:

Let's combine like terms on the left, and use the distributive property on the right. We now have

#2m=-16+12m-4m+16#

We can combine like terms on the right to get

#2m=8m#

We already see that this equation has no solutions...two times something cannot be equal to eight times that same something.

Hope this helps!
