I feel really stupid asking this question, but im trying to help a friend do this problem, yet I dont know how to do it. I am sure it is something easy, and maybe if I saw it, it would click, but right now, im stumped.

solve for m

$\displaystyle \frac {2}{m+1} = \frac {3}{2m+3}$

first, I tried splitting them up, like so:

$\displaystyle \frac {2}{m} +2 = \frac {3}{2m} +1$

$\displaystyle \frac {2}{m} = \frac {3}{2m} -1$
