# How do you solve 6m - 4m = - 4( 4- 3m ) - 2( 2m - 8)?

Jul 9, 2018

No solutions

#### Explanation:

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

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

We can combine like terms on the right to get

$2 m = 8 m$

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

Hope this helps!
