Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

Multiply each side of the equation by #color(red)(3)/color(blue)(h)# to solve for #b# while keeping the equation balanced:

#color(red)(3)/color(blue)(h) xx V = color(red)(3)/color(blue)(h) xx 1/3hb#

#(3V)/h = cancel(color(red)(3))/cancel(color(blue)(h)) xx 1/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(3)))color(blue)(cancel(color(black)(h)))b#

#(3V)/h = b#

#b = (3V)/h#
