Simplifying 8k + 2m = 3m + k Reorder the terms: 8k + 2m = k + 3m Solving 8k + 2m = k + 3m Solving for variable 'k'. Move all terms containing k to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '-1k' to each side of the equation. 8k + -1k + 2m = k + -1k + 3m Combine like terms: 8k + -1k = 7k 7k + 2m = k + -1k + 3m Combine like terms: k + -1k = 0 7k + 2m = 0 + 3m 7k + 2m = 3m Add '-2m' to each side of the equation. 7k + 2m + -2m = 3m + -2m Combine like terms: 2m + -2m = 0 7k + 0 = 3m + -2m 7k = 3m + -2m Combine like terms: 3m + -2m = 1m 7k = 1m Divide each side by '7'. k = 0.1428571429m Simplifying k = 0.1428571429m
