I don't understand what to do with the first part of the problem.

Basically this is equation to solve for m

1/ 3 m + 2/3 m = -1

3/3 m = -1

m = -1/ 1 = 1

Basically this is equation to solve for m

1/ 3 m + 2/3 m = -1

3/3 m = -1

m = -1/ 1 = 1

I think you want to solve for m. If you multiply both sides of the equation by m you will have

1/3+2/3=-m so m=-1 because 1/3+2/3 =1 Does this help?
