Hello! I posted a question earlier asking about a Pre-Calculus problem, but I'm afraid there was a small typo. I forgot to add what the equation was equal to. Thanks to CPHill for your answer to my previous question, however. This is the correct one.

**m=2(nx+bn+bx)**

If anyone can help me, it would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you!

#1**+2 **

m=2(nx+bn+bx)

I think you wanted to solve for x

Divide both sides by 2

(m /2) = nx + bn + bx subtract bn from both sides

(m / 2) - bn = nx + bx simplify the left side as a single fraction

[ m - 2bn ] / 2 = nx + bx factor the right

[ m - 2bn ] / 2 = x [ n + b] divide both sides by [ n + b ]

[ m - 2bn] / [ 2 ( n + b) ] = x
