  1. you want to get m by itself.
    First, get everything with m on one side, and the rest on the other.

    Since both sides are equal, if you do the same thing on both sides, they remain equal. So, subtract 12 from both sides. That gives you

    4m = 12

    Now divide by 4 on both sides. That gives you

    m = 3

    and you're done.

    Check:

    12+4*3 = 24
    12+12 = 24
    24 = 24

    all is well.
