# How do you solve \frac { h } { 8} = 3?

Mar 4, 2018

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Multiply each side of the equation by $\textcolor{red}{8}$ to solve for $h$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$\textcolor{red}{8} \times \frac{h}{8} = \textcolor{red}{8} \times 3$

$\cancel{\textcolor{red}{8}} \times \frac{h}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{8}}}} = 24$

$h = 24$

$\textcolor{red}{h = 24}$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{h}{8} = 3$

$h = 3 \times 8$

$\textcolor{red}{h = 24}$

The answer would be $h = 24$.

#### Explanation:

Since the $h$ is being divided by $8$, you must do the opposite; multiplication. So, you multiply both sides by $8$ to leave $h$ by itself, like it wants to be.

Then you have $8 \times 3$ on the other side, which is $24$. So, you end up with $h = 24$.
