Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let us see what we can do with your formula 20 + (h1) (1.5) = 32 we want to look for the value of h first, we need to use distribution since we have (h1) (1.5) 20 + 1.5h  1.5 = 32 we want to solve for h, so we have to isolate it by subtracting 20 and then adding 1.5 on both sides of the equation (the righthand side and lefthand side or RHS and LHS) 1.5h = 13.5 now divide both sides by 1.5 to get h
