    you should look up transposing formulas or how to solve algebraic equations. do you have a textbook? the internet is a good place to start as well. even here. there are threads where the following steps are fleshed out more on this forum

    h = vt - 5t^2 ..........we want to get v by itself, so add 5t^2 to both sides

    \Rightarrow h + 5t^2 = vt .............now divide by t (provided t \ne 0)

    \Rightarrow \frac {h + 5t^2}{t} = v

    done
