First, we should get rid of the 1/2, so we can multiply by 2. This will give you 2A=bh. Now you just divide by h, and then there's your answer. b=2A/h

2. anonymous

Divided each side by h and, divide by 1/2 and then simplify.$b=\frac{2 A}{h}$

$$\huge A = \frac{bh}{2} \rightarrow \color{red}{\frac{2}{h}} \times A = \frac{bh}{2} \times \color{red}{\frac{2}{h}}$$
