i need help solving the following:
10h = 8h + 6
and
6x + 2 = 3x  1

on the first, subtract 8h from both sides.
On the second, start by subtracting 3x from both sides, then subtract 2 from both sides. 
combine the like terms, making 2h=6. then simplify and you get h=3.
once again, combine like terms, and you have 3x+2=1. simplify. 3x=3. simplify. x=1 
on the first subtract 8h from both sides, then divide both sides by 2 and you get h=3.
on the second subtract 3x from both sides, then subtract 2 from both sides then divide both sides by 3 and you get 2/3.
