How do you solve 7=3+h/6?

Oct 28, 2016

$h = 24$

Explanation:

$7 = 3 + \frac{h}{6}$
subtract $3$ from both sides
$\implies 7 - 3 = 3 + \frac{h}{6} - 3$
$\implies 4 = \frac{h}{6}$
multiply both sides with $6$
$\implies 4 \cdot 6 = \frac{h}{\cancel{6}} \cdot \cancel{6}$
$\implies 24 = h$
Hence, $h = 24$

Alternatively, you can do it this way,
$7 = 3 + \frac{h}{6}$
$7 = 3 + 4$
$\implies \frac{h}{6} = 4$
$\implies h = 4 \cdot 6 = 24$
