    Question Solving for h

    I have a problem, I was wondering if anyone could give me a nudge in the right direction?
    4-\frac{532}{h^2}=0
    On my online math program for my course, it is saying that I should have a whole number but I can't get one...
    I added the fraction to both sides, multiplied by h^2, and then divided by 4, and then took the root of the answer... thoughts? Was that the correct procedure?

    Re: Solving for h

    Yes, the procedure is correct:

     4 - \frac {532} {h^2}=0

     4= \frac {532} {h^2}

     4h^2= 532

     h^2 = 133

     h = \pm 11.53256...
