# How do you solve m-30=6-2m?

Jul 27, 2016

$m = 12$

#### Explanation:

The key to this problem is to get like terms together or all the m's to one side.

Step 1
add $2 m$ to the other side
now we have $2 m + m - 30 = 6$

step 2
add 30 to the other side
now we have $2 m + m = 6 + 30$

step 3
we combine like terms
now we have $3 m = 36$

step 4
divide 3
now we have $m = \frac{36}{3}$

final step
simplify $m = 12$
