# How do you solve 7m=18m-2?

Aug 1, 2016

$m = \textcolor{b l u e}{\frac{2}{11}}$

#### Explanation:

$7 m = 18 m - 2$

Add $2$ to both sides of the equation.

$2 + 7 m = 18 m$

Subtract $7 m$ from both sides.

$2 = 18 m - 7 m$

Simplify.

$2 = 11 m$

Divide both sides by $11$.

$\frac{2}{11} = m$

Switch sides.

$m = \frac{2}{11}$
