Grade 7 - Mathematics 9.30 Area of Parallelogram - II

Example:
The area of a parallelogram ABCD is 120 sq cm. If the distance between the parallel sides AB and CD (height) is 8 cm. Find the length of AB (base).

Solution:
Given that,
Area of the parallelogram (A) = 120 sq cm.
Distance between the parallel sides AB and CD (h) = 8 cm. The area of a parallelogram (A) = bh
Therefore, b = A/h
= 120/8
= 15 cm.

Directions: Read the above example carefully and answer the following questions. Also write at least 10 examples of your own.
