The area, as stated by the question, is

(6x

^{2 }-3x -3) square meters.A parallelogram wth base, b, and height, h, has an area given by, bh.

To calculate the base and the height, factor this expression

3(2x

^{2}- x - 1)= 3(2x+1)(x-1)Now multiply 3: either distribute 3(2x +1) or 3(x-1)

the dimensions can be as follows,

base = (6x + 3) meters and height = (x-1) meters

Or

base = (2x +1) meters and height = (3x - 3)meters
