# Thread: Can anybody help solve this equation?

1. ## Can anybody help solve this equation?

I would like to solve this equation. Thank you.

m+(m-10)+2(m-10)=310

2. Simplifying:

m + m - 10 + 2m - 20 = 310

4m - 30 = 310

4m = 340

m = 85

Open,
$m + m - 10 + 2m - 20 = 310$
Thus,
$4m - 30 = 310$
Thus, add 30 to both sides,
$4m = 340$
Now divide both sides by 4.
