Hi I've been stuck on this all day can someone help me out? goes like this:

3/2 - (h+9)/2 = (h-10)/6

I've been looking around on the site for a specific example but haven't found one yet...

thanks for the help

To learn how to solve linear equations, try here. :wink:

Note: A good first step might be to multiply through by 6, to clear the various fractions. Then get rid of the parentheses, and solve as usual.
