Write an equation that can be used to find the height "h" of the prism Do you know the equation V = Ah to find the volume of a prism from the base area and height? Strictly speaking this equation "can be used to find the height" but I suspect that your child's teacher wants it to be solved for "h" (by isolating "h" on one side.) Possibly the given values for A and V are also meant to be plugged in. The phrasing is a little ambiguous! Good Hunting!
