m=0 is that correct?

well i got m = 0 and n =-8 im not sure what i should put down as my aswer lol

so if u got m=0 n i did too then i guess thats the answer

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I think u will have to use the m=0, because u were asked to factor out m from the expression

Oh then you will be very tired then. but what were you doing all along?

How? why did you cancel out the m's ?

4 years ago
OpenStudy (unklerhaukus):

they were common

but don't you think in this case you are suppose to make m the subject?

OpenStudy (unklerhaukus):

the question asks us to factor m from the expression I factored m right out of the expression

Uncle, take a luk at the question again, u wer asked to 'factor m from' the expresion, so m must not be missin from it but rather ,it must stand out in the expression

4 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

so is it m = 0 or n=-8m?

4 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

In that case , 5mn=3m => 5mn-3m=0 m(5n-3)=0 m=0/(5n-3) m=0

you guys seem to be having fun with this one

OpenStudy (anonymous):

sure! u'v got help us out.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

haha well factoring the m out is still factoring it and whateve process we use we end up with m=0

4 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

well first i came to n=-8m and that is simplified to 0 anyway

4 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

so i like the process unkle used cause its simple that way
