Area of a Parallelogram
The area of a parallelogram is 252 cm2 and base is 42 cm. Use ALGEBRA to find the height of the parallelogram. Include your formula and units. Show all steps...
Karin from Algebra-Class says:
The formula for the area of a parallelogram is:
A = bh Area = base times height
So, you are given A = 252 & b = 42
A = bh
252 = 42h
Now, we'll solve for h
252/42 = 42h/42
6 = h
Therefore, the height is 6 cm.
I hope this helps.
