It's unclear what the "X" is for, but the first line "m/7-5=92" can be solved to determine the value of "m".

m/7−5=92

m/7 = 92 + 5 = 97

m = 97 * 7 = **679**

Solving implies there is only one unknown. Since this is pre-algebra, I am assuming the x was a mistake since you already have an unknown in the problem (m).

m/7 - 5 = 92 (don't know if X is part of the problem)

m/7 - 5 + 5 = 92 + 5 (add five to both sides)

m/7 = 97

Multiple by 7 on each side

7 * m/7 = m

97 * 7 = 679

so m = 679 DON'T FORGET TO DOUBLE CHECK YOUR WORK, PUT THE ANSWER BACK INTO THE EQUATION.

679/7 - 5 = 92

97 - 5 = 92 TRUE, answer checks out. I think this is what you were looking for.

Hi Andrea;

m/7-5=92 X

I am assuming this is...

(m/7)-5=92x

I do not know exactly what you mean by "solve".

I will do what I can...

(m/7)-5=92x

Let's add 5 to both sides...

5+(m/7)-5=92x+5

m/7=92x+5

Let's multiply both sides by 7...

7(m/7)=7(92x+5)

m=644x+35

Does this help? If not, please let me know.
