-4(3n + 2) = 20;

-12n - 8 = 20;

-12n = 20 + 8;

-12n = 28;

n = -28/12;

n = -7/3

SCM, I don't understand how you got this answer. There is no bracket around m-9.
Added 4/3/2015 6:51:56 AM
What i think is its a Simple proportion question and m-9 is a single number like x .
The question to me is like x/y = a/b where x = m-9.


@deb i don't think it needs one , the question is clear to me.


If it looks otherwise to you , you can flag it of course
as you already have xD

You way of solving is only correct if it is (m-9)/2.
