Use herons formula to calculate the area of one half of the parallelogram.

now, then multiply it by 2 to get 612 cm^2. so option c is right answer.....right???

I may have a way of calculating those coordinates quickly: |dw:1354889186448:dw| \[x^2+y^2=c^2\\x^2+(y-a)^2=b^2\\x^2+y^2+a^2-2ay=b^2\\c^2+a^2-2ay=b^2\\y=\frac{b^2-c^2-a^2}{2a}\\x=\sqrt{\frac{b^2-a^2}{-2a}}\]

So 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?

If 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.

actually the formula for x might be slightly off.... but it can be fixed I think.
