\(\frac{m}{3}+\frac14>\frac{3m}{8}\)

                                               Multiply both sides of the inequality by  24  .

\(24(\frac{m}{3}+\frac14)>24(\frac{3m}{8})\)

                                               Distribute the  24  to the terms in parenthesees.

\(\frac{24m}{3}+\frac{24}4>\frac{(24)(3)m}{8}\)

                                               Simplify each fraction.

\(8m+6>9m\)

                                               Subtract  8m  from both sides of the inequality.

\(6>9m-8m\\~\\ 6>m\\~\\ m<6\)
