**paul**, Wednesday, November 3, 2010 at 11:59pmok so your parallegram looks like this

5

l----\

4l-----\

7

so you know that the bottom line has 2 more meters then the top so what you do is you cut that off from the shape and think of it as a 5x4 rectangle

5

______ [\

4 [ ] 4[ \

[ ] [__\

------ 2

4x5=20 4x2=8 8/2=4

find the answer to that equation then take your leftover triangle whitch is 2x4 because its the leftover 2 from the bottom line then multiply 2x4 then divide by 2 because its a tryangle then add up both equations and you have your answer

20+4=24
