what is the area of this parallelogram
 one year ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I think its just B x H
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so 6 + 4 ? 10 and times 20 ?
 one year ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Oh wait..no..
 one year ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Ok..you see how there this a small triangle in the parallelogram?
 one year ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Ok. That A stands for Area. And that A is in the triangle. So its saying that the area of the triangle is 20. So we need to find the height of the triangle before trying to find the are of the paralellogram.
 one year ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So..whats the base of the triangle?
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
its 4 ft
 one year ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Good. Now do you have any idea of how to find the height of the triangle?
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no i dont, how do you find it ?
 one year ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Ok..well one way is that you can put the info you have in the area of a triangle formula and solve fore the height..it would look like this.. (4 x H)1/2=20 SOLVE IT! The 4 is for the Base..the 20 is for the area..
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
how do you solve ?
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
is it 10 ?
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
wait its 125 !
 one year ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
The H is 10
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oh i was right the first time then
 one year ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yeh! Now that you know what the height is, you can now find the area of the parallelogram
 one year ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Its going to be the basic formula B x H
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so 4* 10 ?
 one year ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no..try again..

The area of a triangle is (1/2) its base length times its corresponding height. If the base is 4.5 and the height 4, then the Area is (1/2)*(4.5)*4 Area = ?
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the area would be 810 ?
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oh nvm its 9
 one year ago

Directrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
That is correct (9).
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no its wrong :(
 one year ago

Directrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Then, please check the diagram. The base is marked 4.5 and the height 4. That would be 9 square miles. Check to see if the diagram is marked correctly. @andrea408

whats the area of this trapazoid ?
 one year ago

Directrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
The area of a rectangle is the product of the length and the width. The area of a triangle is (1/2)b * h. So, ... dw:1360024949464:dw
 one year ago

Directrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Area of trapezoid is (1/2) * 6 * 14 + 13 * 14 A = ?
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
is it 133?
 one year ago

Directrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Try again > (1/2) * 6 * 14 + 13 * 14  Do onehalf of the product of 6 and 14. Add that answer to the product of 13 and 14 and post what you get.
 one year ago

Directrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
224 ? > I agree.
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so the area of the trapazoid is 224 ?
 one year ago

Directrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
That is what I got.
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
are you sure?

Directrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
What are the options?
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i dont have options . i just put in the answer and click done to see if its correct but im scared to click
 one year ago

Directrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
If the picture is correctly drawn and labeled, I am certain that the answer is 224 square feet.

the base is 4.5, the height is 3 so the area is just base * height = 4.5 * 3 = 13.5 square miles
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
In general Area of Parallelogram: A = B*H B = base H = height
 one year ago

andrea408 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so the area of ABDF is just 13.5 ?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yep 13.5 square miles
