    Solve for $\displaystyle h^2$ then take the square root on both sides to solve for $\displaystyle h$

    Re: Formular on bmi

    21,6= 70/h^2

    Multiply both sides by h^2:
    21,6 h^2= 70

    Divide both sides by 21,6:
    h^2= 70/21,6= 3,2407...


    Take the square root of both sides.
