    S=2LW+2LH+2WH for H

    I know how to solve for H, but I'm not understanding how we get there.

    S = 2LW + 2LH + 2WH

    2LW + 2LH + 2WH = S

    2LH + 2WH = S - 2LW it appears that there are 2 H's

    H = S - 2LW / (2L + 2W) but here we only arrive with one

    2LH + 2WH = S - 2LW

    H(2L + 2W) = s- 2LW

    H = (S - 2LW)/(2L + 2W)
