Work Step by Step

Substitute -4 into the equation for the variable and then simplify to see if the equation is true or false. $\frac{5m-1}{6}$=$\frac{3m-2}{4}$ $\frac{5(-4)-1}{6}$=$\frac{3(-4)-2}{4}$ $\frac{-20-1}{6}$=$\frac{-12-2}{4}$ $\frac{-21}{6}$=$\frac{-14}{4}$ $\frac{-21\div3}{6\div3}$=$\frac{-14\div2}{4\div2}$ -$\frac{7}{2}$=-$\frac{7}{2}$ This is a solution.
