6m - 2 = 2m + 6 First, you need to get the variable (m) on one side of the equation, so subtract 2m from both sides of the equation. This will remove the m from the right side of the equation. 6m - 2 - 2m = 2m + 6 - 2m Simplify to get this: 4m - 2 = 6 Add 2 to each side. 4m - 2 + 2 = 6 + 2 Simplify to get: 4m = 8 Divide each side by 4. $\frac{4m}{4}$ = $\frac{8}{4}$ Simplify to m = 2
