Answer

$m=-16\frac{1}{2}$

Work Step by Step

$\frac{-3}{4}=\frac{m}{22}\longrightarrow$ cross multiply to solve for m $4m=-3\times22\longrightarrow$ multiply $4m=-66\longrightarrow$ divide both sides by 4 $4m\div4=-66\div4\longrightarrow$ simplify $m=-16\frac{2}{4}\longrightarrow$ reduce $m=-16\frac{1}{2}$
