# How do you solve 117- 11h = 40?

Mar 3, 2018

$h = 7$

#### Explanation:

Move the variable to the other side of the equation to make it positive. You'd get

$117 = 11 h + 40$

Then move $40$ to the other side of the equations, which makes it negative. You'd get

$77 = 11 h$

Then you simply divide both sides by $11$ to get

$7 = h$
