1. jhonyy9

do you know formula for area of a parallelogramm ?

2. zhane2015

nope..it's very confusing

3. kausarsalley

$A = b \times h$ A=Area of parallelogram b=base h=height

4. zhane2015

mkay so im guesssing that i can plug in what's given the solve for the missing variable as if it were x right???

like he said kausarsalley The correct answer is 12 12x20=240 If you used 24, 24x20=480

6. kausarsalley

yes...and that missing variable is the base (b)

just plug in like you said you should find that !

8. zhane2015

kk i gotzz 12:)

9. kausarsalley

that is right!

good job :)

like i show you 12x20=240 If you used 24, 24x20=480
