    If you want to get h all by itself, you need to make everything that is multiplied with it 1. For instance, if I want to solve for x: \[z=3x\]Multiply both sides by 1/3\[(1/3)z=(1/3)3x\]\[z/3=1x\]\[\frac{z}{3}=x\]

    Well I'm not going to do it for you but if you compare to mine, what will make a 1/2 become a 1?

    No. What multiplied with 1/2 makes 1?

    Ugh. no the answer was 2. 2(1/2) = 1. So in the triangle equation multiply by 2 on both sides.

    Well, do it and show me what you get. multiply by 2 on both sides of A = 1/2 b h

    No. multiply by 2 on both sides of the equation.

    Oh my god dude. Sorry, this is to tough to handle. I'll just give it to you, since arithmetic is too hard. \[A = bh/2\]Multiply both sides by 2. \[2A=bh2/2\]Multiply both sides by 1/b \[2A/b = bh/b\] \[2A/b = h\]
