Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation


Solve for h

2h + 8 = 5h + 2

Group variables

Group our variables 2h and 5h
subtract 5h from both sides

2h + 8 - 5h = 5h + 2 - 5h

Cancel 5h on the right side:

-3h + 8 = 2

Group constants

Group our constants 8 and 2.
subtract 8 from both sides

-3h + 8 - 8 = 2 - 8

Cancel 8 on the left side:

-3h = -6

Divide each side of the equation by -3


h = 2

Final Answer

h = 2

What is the Answer?
h = 2
