Here's what you need to do in order to solve for "h."
First, you need to get all the h's on one side of the equation. To do that, you get rid of the h from the right side of the equation. That is done by subtracting h (and you have to do it to both sides of the equation).
So that gives you (2h-h)-8=(h-h) + 17 which comes out to
h-8 = 17
So now to solve for h, you have to get all the numbers on the right side of the equation. To do that, you add 8 to both sides (so that there is no longer a number on the left).
That gives you h = 17+8
So h = 25
h is the unknown variable here therefore in order to find out the value of h, it must be isolated,
2h - 8 = h + 17
2h - 8 - h = h + 17 -h (subtract h from both sides)
h - 8 + 8 = 17 + 8 (add 8 to both sides)
h = 25 Answer.
Input this value in the above equation to verify it.
Solve 2h - 8 = h + 17
2h - 8 = h + 17
First subtract " h " on both sides, this way the " h " variables will be on the same side
By subtracting, your equation should look like
h - 8 = 17 Now, Add 8 on both sides
By adding, your equation should look like
h = 25 which is your answer
h-8=17 subtract h from both sides
h=25 add 8 to both sides
you first try to get all unkown variables to one side
so subtract h from both sides
iit will give you
then add 8 to both sides to give you the value of 17
To solve for h you need the terms on one side
move the like terms to the same side
2h-h = 17+8
2h - h = 17 + 8
h = 25
2h-8=h+17 add 8 on both side
2h=h+25 subtract h on both side
2h = 25
2/2 = 25/2
divide eachside by 3 h =3
