What are we supposed to do with this? Please give more details, or just post what the original question is asking.

3. Sorry, I need to solve for h.

$V=\tfrac{1}{3}\pi r^2h$

To solve for h, let us first multiply both sides by 3 to get

$3V=\pi r^2 h$

Now divide by $\pi$ to get

$\frac{3V}{\pi}=r^2 h$

Now to isolate h, divide by $r^2$, and we get what we are looking for:

$\color{red}\boxed{h=\frac{3V}{\pi r^2}}$

Does this make sense?
