I need to show how I worked out the solution

Multiply the first equation by 2, subtract the second equation from it, divide the result by 5:

(8x+6y+14m)=23

-(3x+y+9m)=-10

5x+5y+5m=13

x+y+m=13/5.

Multiply the first equation by 2, subtract the second equation from it, divide the result by 5:

(8x+6y+14m)=23

-(3x+y+9m)=-10

5x+5y+5m=13

x+y+m=13/5.

From the second equation y=10-3x-9m; Plug it into the first equation to get:

4x+3(10-3x-9m)+7m=-5x-20m+30=11.5 From this we obtain upon simplification:

x+4m=3.7 Thus x=3.7-4m; Plug it in the expression for y to obtain:

y=10-3x-9m=10-3(3.7-4m)-9m=-1.1+3m

So, we have:

y=3m-1.1

x=-4m+3.7

Therefore, x+y+m=3m-1.1-4m+3.7+m=2.6
