Two step equations

2m-3=9 i did some but i cant figure out last part! i mult or divide?

Report as

well first you do 2m but reverse and instead of multiplying it divide it, then you will get the remaining answer which is..2/9= .22--> then you ( is that a (-3) or - 3) if it is (-3) then you add it to .22--> and you will get -2.777-->
these are super easy for me!! im in 8th grade so if you need any help with that then ask away!

You actually ADD the 3 to both sides, making 9 turn into 12, then divide by 2, making 12 turn into 6. m = 6 :)
Hope I helped :)

For 2-step equations;
1) Undo + or - first by doing opposite.
2) Undo x or / next by doing opposite
2m - 3 = 9
Undo -3 by adding 3 to both sides.
+ 3. +3
2m = 12
Undo times 2 by dividing by 2
/2. /2
m = 6. ANSWER
Comment if I can explain better
