# How do you solve -2h + 4+ h = 3+ h - 8?

Apr 6, 2018

$h = \frac{9}{2}$

#### Explanation:

We must combine our like terms first on both sides. Doing this, we get:

$- h + 4 = - 5 + h$

We can add $5$ to both sides to get:

$9 - h = h$

Next, add $h$ to both sides to get:

$9 = 2 h$

And lastly, divide both sides by $2$ to get:

$h = \frac{9}{2}$

Hope this helps!
