    The area of one of those is the same as a rectangle area, the base ties the height

    no , that is the unit ft^2 (2/3 ft)*(3 ft) = 2 ft*ft = 2 ft^2

    The area of a triangle is half the base times the height

    same base and same height as the parallelogram, so each triangle is half the area of the parallelogram

    why 4, the area of the paralellogream is 2 ft^2 (2 square feet)

    And each triangle is half of that, or 1 ft^2

    yes, and if you keep your units in there, you get ft*ft = ft^2
