# Thread: Unsure how to show my work...

1. ## Unsure how to show my work...

Given that m=-6, what is the value of -m? I know the answer is 6, but I need to show my work on this written assignment. What are the written steps?

2. ## Re: Unsure how to show my work...

To write it out in painful detail, maybe write "Have that m=-6. Now multiply both sides by -1 to get (-1)(m) = (-1)(-6), so -m = 6."

Code:
       (m,0)                                    (-m,0)
....-7  -6  -5  -4  -3  -2  -1  0  1  2  3  4  5  6   7.... (x-axis)
Get it?
