$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ To solve the given formula, $ V=\dfrac{1}{3}bh $ for $ h ,$ use the properties of equality to isolate the variable. $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Using the properties of equality to isolate the variable results to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 3\cdot V=3\cdot\dfrac{1}{3}bh \\\\ 3V=bh \\\\ \dfrac{3V}{b}=\dfrac{bh}{b} \\\\ \dfrac{3V}{b}=h \\\\ h=\dfrac{3V}{b} .\end{array}
