    Hi,
    I´ll help you with the first step:
    Both formulars express Eph.
    So you have to replace Eph in both of them and write the remaining parts as one equation.
    Then the rest should be easy.
    Greetings,

    I have attached my first atempt. Is this correct or could you tell me where I have gone wrong?

    Maybe what I'm saying is stupid, but can't you simply put them together?
    By doing so, you would have:

    hc*t/b= h*f
    then you can transform it into

    f= hc*t / (b*h)

    EDIT: pardon me...I haven't seen that someone had already answered...
