Answer:

#h=11#

Explanation:

Cross multiplication is usually the best way to solve this type of equation. Imagine a line drawn from the letter #h# to the number #36#, and a second line drawn from #4.5# to #88#. Now multiply the values that are connected by the lines.

#h*36=4.5*88#

Multiply the right hand side to get

#h*36=396#

Finally divide both sides by 36

#h=11#
