c = 18½ right?

sorry to bother you again, but i keep getting stuck on this equation

its another linear one

2m+3 = m+4

i keep getting m = ½

i do it like this,

2m+3=m+4

2m=m+4-3

2m=m+1

m= 1/2

i dont get it

the answer sheet says the answer is 1

what did i do wrong?! - Aug 10th 2009, 09:04 AMWilmer
