    T=2\pi R\left(R+h\right)

    First, divide both sides of the equation by 2\pi R to get:

    \frac{T}{2\pi R}=R+h.

    I'll leave it to you to finish the rest of this problem.

    Is the answer (T/2piR) - R = h?

    Yes. However, you can rewrite the answer as \frac{T-2\pi R^2}{2\pi R} if you combine the two terms.
