    \[Area\ of\ parallelogram\ = Base\ \times\ Altitude\] \[Base= 3\frac{1}{2}=3+\frac{1}{2}=\frac{3\times 2}{1\times 2}+\frac{1}{2}=\frac{6}{2}+\frac12=\frac72\] \[Altitude=\frac{3}{4}\] so \[Area=\frac72 \times \frac34\] I think you can solve now, can't you?

    Type the answer in mixed fraction or fraction form \[\frac{21}{8}=2\frac{5}{8}\]
