Find the area of the parallelogram π΄π΅πΆπ·, given that π΅πΉ is equal to 6.69 centimeters.
00:00:08.950 --> 00:00:12.800
So here weβve labeled that π΅πΉ is 6.69 centimeters.
00:00:13.670 --> 00:00:16.340
And in a parallelogram, this will be considered the height.
00:00:17.080 --> 00:00:22.760
And the formula for the area of a parallelogram is equal to the base times the height.
00:00:23.570 --> 00:00:29.250
So here we have a base of 10 centimeters and a height of 6.69 centimeters.
00:00:29.900 --> 00:00:34.800
So we need to take 10 centimeters and multiply by 6.69 centimeters.
00:00:35.520 --> 00:00:39.630
This means we have an area of 66.9 square centimeters.
00:00:40.690 --> 00:00:46.770
So how is it that the area of a parallelogram has the exact same formula as the area of a rectangle?
00:00:47.420 --> 00:00:56.990
This is because if we would take this little triangle piece and would move it here, we would have then created a rectangle.
00:00:57.700 --> 00:01:04.850
So once again, the area of parallelogram π΄π΅πΆπ· is 66.9 square centimeters.
