say the sets of values are m1,n1 and m2,n2

11m1 = 5(n1-42)
11m2 = 5(n2-42)

Subtracting

11(m1-m2)=5(n1-n2)

So m1-m2 = (5*30)/11

OR if you are familiar with differential calculus, you can get from the equation straight away by differentiating that :

11 dm = 5 dn
and hence m = 150/11

smart
i would never have thought of using differential eq'ns either. kudos.

Another Simple way

11m=5(n-42)

Assume n = 42 to make one side equal to 0
then 11m=0
and m = 0

Repeat it by assuming n as 42+30 i.e 72
11m- 5(72-42)
11m=150
m=150/11

diff = 150/11 - 0 = 150/11
