A triangle formed by the dashed line and the top two sides has a height of eight centimeters. The height of the whole figure is equal to thirteen centimeters. http://static.k12.com/calms_media/media/1564500_1565000/1564708/1/e69c3849d8fde1dc2b089f465dd149c73f1b90d5/MS_IMB-1401012-1100605.jpg

    or find the area to the top shape by multiplying 15 by 8, then multiply the bottom by 15 x(13-8)?

    remember that area of a triangle = 1/2 * base * height Area of a rhombus = height * length :)

    you're welcome BUT the answer is not 195 :O Try again :) Area of triangle = 1/2 * 15 * 8 = ? Area of parallelogram = 15 * (13 - 8) = 15 * 5 = ? Add them up
