To solve the equation -5(m-1)+3(2m-1)=8 using the distributive property:

-5(m-1) = -5m + 5 3(2m-1) = 6m - 3

Combine like terms: -5m + 5 + 6m - 3 = 8 -5m + 6m + 5 - 3 = 8 m + 2 = 8

Subtract 2 from both sides: m = 8 - 2 m = 6

To solve the equation -5(m - 1) + 3(2m - 1) = 8 using the distributive property, we first apply the distributive property to each term within the parentheses:

-5(m - 1) = -5m + 5 3(2m - 1) = 6m - 3

Now, we substitute these expressions back into the original equation:

(-5m + 5) + (6m - 3) = 8

Next, we combine like terms:

-5m + 6m + 5 - 3 = 8

Now, we simplify the expression:

-5m + 6m + 2 = 8

Now, we combine like terms again:

(6m - 5m) + 2 = 8

m + 2 = 8

To isolate the variable m, we subtract 2 from both sides of the equation:

m = 8 - 2

m = 6

Therefore, the solution to the equation -5(m - 1) + 3(2m - 1) = 8 is m = 6.
