Answer:

#h=-1/4#

Explanation:

#color(blue)(2/3-6h=13/6#

Our main aim here is to isolate #x#

Let's start to solve

#rarr2/3-6h=13/6#

Subtract #color(red)(2/3# both sides

#rarr2/3-6h-color(red)(2/3)=13/6-color(red)(2/3)#

#rarrcancel(2/3)-6h-cancel(color(red)(2/3))=13/6-color(red)(2/3)#

#rarr-6h=3/2#

Divide both sides by #color(red)(-6#

#rarr(cancel(-6)h)/(cancelcolor(red)(-6))=3/2-:color(red)(-6) #

#rarrh=3/2*color(red)(-1/6) #

#color(green)(rArrh=-1/4#
