The area of this figure can be found by the formula A = (wh) + 0.5(bh). If Marcie wants the total area to be larger than a specified value, she can use the formula A > (wh)+ 0.5(bh). Rewrite this formula to solve for b. Show all steps in your work. HALP ME

    If A > wh + 0.5bh, isplate the term containing b to get A - wh > 0.5bh so now double both sides and 2(A - wh) > bh, now divide by h and 2(A - wh)/h > b or b < 2(A - wh)/h
