Show the mathematical relationship between Kb and pKb, and the answer may suggest itself to you.

I think OP was wanting to know the relationship between Kb (pKb) and [OH-]. In which case, still do as Babcock suggests: set up the standard mathematical relationship which describes [OH-] and Kb.

The definition of pKb is that pKb = -log10Kb.

@OP, What does this imply about base strength?
