Math's a tool not a terror

If you want to solve for the area of the parallelogram that is simply the base times the height.

The parallelogram is inside a rectangle composed of squares with sides of 9 ft each.

The sides of three squares are vertical (top to bottom) within the parallelogram

There are four horizontal lengths are across the bottom

Keeping in mind that the sides of the squares within the parallelogram are all 9 ft you should be able to count the vertical feet and the horizontal feet you need to determine the height and base for the parallelogram.

Give it a try.

There is no solution, so there is no solving.

If you want to determine the area, the height of the parallelogram is 3 and the base is 4

A = bh

A = (4)(3)

A = 12

The figure is a parallelogram.

The area of a parallelogram is:

Area = base * height

Since each square is 9 ft.,

base = 4*9 = 36 ft

height = 4*9 = 27 ft

The area of the figure shown is **972** .
