Answer:The value of the formula for b is [tex]b=\frac{2A}{h}[/tex].Step-by-step explanation:Consider the provided formula.[tex]A = \frac{1}{2}bh[/tex]We need to solve the formula for bMultiply both the sides by 2.[tex]2A =2\times \frac{1}{2}bh[/tex][tex]2A =bh[/tex]Now divide both the sides by h.[tex]\frac{2A}{h} =\frac{bh}{h}[/tex][tex]\frac{2A}{h} =b[/tex][tex]b=\frac{2A}{h}[/tex]Hence, the value of the formula for b is [tex]b=\frac{2A}{h}[/tex].
