## Introductory Algebra for College Students (7th Edition)

Substitute -1 into the equation for the variable and then simplify to see if the equation is true or false. $\frac{6m-5}{11}$=$\frac{3m-2}{5}$ $\frac{6(-1)-5}{11}$=$\frac{3(-1)-2}{5}$ $\frac{-6-5}{11}$=$\frac{-3-2}{5}$ $\frac{-11}{11}$=$\frac{-5}{5}$ -1=-1 This is a solution.
