    Solving for h

    A=\frac{T-ph}{2}

    Solve for T & h

    I can't figure out how to solve for h. I suppose while I'm here, could someone check my awser for T it's as follows.

    A\cdot2+ph=T



    I used * for times because I didn't know what the latex uses for it.

    Edit: I found out how to make the times symbol.

    Your answer for T is correct.

    To solve for h, follow these steps:

    1. Multiply both sides by 2.

    2. Subtract T from both sides.

    3. Divide both sides by -p.

    A = (T - ph)/2
    2A= T- ph

    1. Solve for T

    2A+ph=T
    T=2A+ph

    2. Solve for H

    2A -T = -ph
    -(2A-T)=-(-ph)
    T-2A=ph
    h = (T-2A)/p

    Ok, I'm having trouble putting it into an equation. If I understand this right I don't get an answer, just a simplified answer, right?

    Edit: OK, thanks Charbel & topher0805
