Help with Algebra 2 homework. I wasn't in class for how to do the lesson. Please help!!

the directions say solve each formula for the indicated variable. A=1/2bh, for h. how do you do this? what are the steps. and if possible a link to a website on how to do it.

A=1/2 bh. That just means to get h by itself. Use your algebra one skills..pretend h is just x and solve for x.
Mult by 2,so 2A=bh
Now div by b, so (2A)/b=h
All done!

There really isn't enough info here. Solve for H? 1/2 * 2/1 =1 . Then you have A=b*h.. get the h alone. :)

I believe all it means is area equals .5 times base times height. the indicated variables are the amounts they give you for each measure so if the base is 15ft and the height is 5ft then the formula would be .5 times 15 times 5 which equals 37.5. so 37.5 is the area.

I hate Algebra 2. I'm so glad I'm done with honors Algebra. Now it's on to honors Geometry.
