## SWAG 3 years ago The height of a parallelogram is 5 units more than the base. The measure of the base of the parallelogram is 11 units. What is the area, in square units, of the parallelogram? Answer 176 275 302 605

1. Ledah

Take the formula for area of a parallelogram. plug in the numbers for height and base. then solve

2. SWAG

than that would be?

3. Ledah

By the way this in in the writing subject my friend. try placing in mathematics subject you wouldve gotten help

4. Ledah

hold on i'll get the formula

5. SWAG

i did everywhere

6. Ledah

Example 1: Find the area of a parallelogram with a base of 12 centimeters and a height of 5 centimeters. [IMAGE] Solution: A A = (12 cm) · (5 cm) A = 60 cm2 Heres an example

7. SWAG

so in this case its like 11 times 5?

8. Ledah

Its base times height. so yes you would be correct

9. SWAG

i got 55 now what :)

10. ZhangYan

this should go to math not writing

11. Ledah

Hmm.. none of your answers math up it that... thats really strange..

12. Ledah

@ZhangYan I already told him

13. SWAG

i agree and i know it should i posted everywhere cuz no1 would help

14. Ledah

Match*

15. ZhangYan

\[A=bh\]\[A=b(b+5)\]\[A=11(11+5)\]\[A=11(16)\]now multiply 11*16 and it will give you a answer

16. Ledah

o_O Yeah knew I forgot a step

17. SWAG

thank u so much :D

18. ZhangYan
