Is your equation ?

If so start by squaring both sides,

Then adding to both sides

Finally taking the square root of both sides.

Do you follow?(Nod) - Oct 30th 2010, 02:50 PMmr fantastic

ok so

first i would square both sides

then subtract s^2 from both sides

giving me h=sqrt{S^2-b^2}

No, if you want to make it this way, it's a little different.

Square both sides:

Now, Move b^2;

You see that there is a minus sign? Multiply both sides by -1:

Rearrange:

Now, you take the square root.
