    the reason I am showing you this is to show how to intuitively put together the very idea of a AREA. \(Area = length \times width\)

    The key for parallelogram is to treat as a rectangle.

    Cut off the one end and fix the other end missing a triangle of the same size.

    it is not about whether you have the right answer or not. it is more about understanding how to solve it.

    I put this: Use the pythagorean theorem to solve for x. Area=length×width. Area of a parallelogram = base x corresponding altitude. So area here = 38 x 35 = 1330 sq. in. Is that enough information? .
