in the given equation find the value of variable m 17m3/2=5m+14

17 m  3 / 2 = 5 m + 14 Subtract 5 m to both sides
17 m  3 / 2  5 m = 5 m + 14  5 m
12 m  3 / 2 = 14 Add 3 / 2 to both sides
12 m  3 / 2 + 3 / 2 = 14 + 3 / 2
12 m = 14 + 3 / 2
12 m = 28 / 2 + 3 / 2
12 m = 31 / 2 Divide both sides by 12
m = ( 31 / 2 ) / 12
m = 31 / ( 2 * 12 )
m = 31 / 24
