    ok so you are trying to work out m right?
    this is a fairly simple algebra question I will try and explain as best as possible.

    6m-7 =4m+2
    now what we need to do is to find m. I will provide a way to do this.

    6m = 4m+2+7 now remember since we take the 7 to the other side we must change the sign.

    6m=4m+9 just addition with the 2 and 7.

    so now we need to bring the 4 to the other side.

    6m-4m=9
    now we subtract 4 from 6.

    2m = 9
    now we must reverse the sign as you should note that 2m means 2 x m
    so it becomes

    m= 9/2 9
    -
    2

    or m=4.5

    I hope that helps
