Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I may have a way of calculating those coordinates quickly: dw:1354889186448:dw \[x^2+y^2=c^2\\x^2+(ya)^2=b^2\\x^2+y^2+a^22ay=b^2\\c^2+a^22ay=b^2\\y=\frac{b^2c^2a^2}{2a}\\x=\sqrt{\frac{b^2a^2}{2a}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now you know the coordinates of the parallelogram. There is a formula from algebra about how to calculate the area. It involves cross products or inner products or something?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you had good memory, you could just memorise the formula for x and y that I derived above. (I think it's right...) Then calculating the area would take about three lines.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually the formula for x might be slightly off.... but it can be fixed I think.
