This can be explained with help from the distributive property.

a * b + a * c = a * (b + c)

3 * m + 2/5 * m

a = m

b = 3

c = 2/5

a * (b + c) => (3 +2/5) * m = 3.4 * m

That's a start. Use that method to find the other side of the expression (2*m-1/2*m) and combine the two. Good luck!

3m + 2 2m - 1

———— + ———— =

5m 2m

*(m ≠ 0)*

2(3m + 2) 5(2m - 1)

————— + ————— =

10m 10m

6m + 4 + 10m - 5

————————— =

10m

**(16m - 1) / 10m **
