## nomnom147 3 years ago Find the area of a parallelogram if a base and corresponding altitude have the indicated lengths. Write your answer as a mixed number. Base 3 1/2 feet, 3/4 altitude feet. PLEASE HELPP!!!!!! THANKS :)

1. ash2326

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

2. nomnom147

just multiply the fractions right?

3. ash2326

Yeah, that's it:)

4. FoolForMath

Yes.

5. ash2326

Don't forget the units, feet^2

6. FoolForMath

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