Solve for h

Q:  Solve for h:

a=(1/2) b*h


A:  OK.  We gotta get h by itself.  First, let’s get rid of that 1/2 by multiply both sides by 2/1:

(2/1)a = (2/1) * (1/2) b*h

2a = (2/2)b*h [since 2/2 is really just 1, we have]

2a = b*h

Now, to get h by itself, we must divide both sides by b:

2a/b = h

Tada!
