    I'm getting 9.58333333333333, which rounds to 9.58 so you are correct

    Did you mean a parallelogram with area 115 and base 12? The area of a parallelogram is equal to the base times the height. 115=12(h). Simply divide 115 by 12 and you get the height, which is 9.5833333 (repeating) units. Rounded to the nearest hundredth, as you requested in your original question, this would be 9.58.
