How do you solve this problem?
I'm going to assume you're solving for h. It's a little confusing with 2 equal signs. But if you were solving for h, you would move the 5 to the other side of the equation by subtracting it (which would be -14=-h/12). and now since both sides are negative, you can just get rid of the negatives my multiplying the whole equation by negative. (if only one side of the equation was negative-this would be futile) so now you have 14=h/12. now you just have to multiply both sides by 12 in order to get rid of the fraction. (h/12 * 12 gives you h which is what you want, so you have to multiple the other side by 12 as well.) you'd get h = 12*14, or h=168
