Find the area of the parallelogram.
A) 640 in^2
B) 512 in^2
C) 384 in^2
D) 240 in^2
This problem is confusing. How would I go about finding the height? It's not 12, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first you know how its 1/2 * (a+b) * h then a is 32 b is 32+12 h is found using pythagorean theorem square root of 20^2  12^2 so using formula you have 0.5*(32+12)*32*stuff = 608 inches ^2 ok... so thats not one of the choices.. either im wrong or the choices, will try again and write again... coming soon.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OH I HAVE IT! the area of the trapezium is 608 now subtract area of the triangle which gives 608  20*12 /2 = 608  length done in previous question gives 5*12 which is BBBBBBB
