    Okay, so that triangle and the parallelogram have the same height, which is what will let us solve this. Let me define the variable h=height, both of the triangle and parallelogram Area of the triangle = (1/2)h*(AQ) = 20 Area of the parallelogram = base*height = (AQ + QB)*h QB = (3/2)*AQ

    (AQ + QB) = (AQ + (3/2)AQ) = (5/2)AQ So the area of the parallelogram = (5/2)AQ*h And we know that (1/2)AQ*h = 20 from the triangle.
