1.) Find the area of a rectangle in which the base measures 20 centimeters and the height is half the length of the base.

2.) Find the area of a parallelogram in which the height measures 14 inches and the base measures 6 inches more than the height.
Thanks. A lot.

Your first answer is correct. 20 * 10 = 200 square centimeters.

The second answer is not correct. The height is 14 inches and the base is 20 inches. The formula is A = b * h

I don't know how I got 68. Would this be correct: a= 280in squared? Or am I still off?

You've got it now. The area of the parallelogram is 280 square inches.

Great! Thank you. Pretty much I really only need help on the circles and that other post below (the one that hasn't been answered) and then I should be done- Finally!=)

I'm going to pass on the post I haven't answered. I'm a little confused about the directions, but perhaps another teacher can help you out.
