1. Start by expanding the expression contained in the parentheses () on the left hand side

5 + 11(2-m) = m - 9 ⇒ 5 + **22 - 11m** = m - 9

2. Bring all the terms with m to the right hand side, and all the other terms to the left hand side

5 + 22 - 11m = m - 9 ⇒ 5 + 22 **+ 9** = m **+ 11m**

3. Add and simplify both sides of the equation

5 + 22 + 9 = m + 11m ⇒ **36** = **12m**

4. Divide both sides of the equation by 12

36 = 12m ⇒ **3** = **m**

The final answer is m=3.
