what is a=bh solve for h?
It means Area is Base times Height. H meaning height. Usually in algebra and math in general if not stated otherwise you can pretty much assume A means area, H means height, L is length, W is width and B is base. 🙂
To solve for H you would have to plug in the given height and base. For example if the area given was 12 and the base is 4.
12=4(h) so you’d divide 12 by 4 to get h (the height) which would be 3. Hope this helps.
[A more efficient method would be to use the equation H=a/b like the answerers below have stated, but it’s principle is the same as what I showed above.. just in equation format]
