Determine the value of rm In the given equation.

\(1,000 — m = 408\) Write the equation

\(1,000—m— 1,000 = 408—1,000\) Subtract 1,000 from both sides

\(-m = -592\) Simplify

\(-\frac{1m}{-1}=-\frac{592}{-1}\) Divide both sides by -1

\(m = 592\) Simplify

Check by substituting the value of m to the original equation.

\(1,000 -m = 408\) Write the equation

\(1,000 -592 = 408\) Substitute the value of m

\(408 = 408\) The statement is true
