Find the area of the parallelogram with vertices at...? (6,4), (0,4), (3,4), and (3,4)
A) 14
B) 48
C) 24
D)
PLEASE HELP A.S.A.P., beggers can't be choosers but maybe an explanation?

Procedure: Calculate 1 hor side and the height. A = bh.
A(6,4), D(0,4). AD is a hor. side.
AD = 0(6) = 6.
A(6,4), B(3,4). AB is a slant line.
tanA = Y/X = (4(4)) / (3(6) = 8/3.
Y = 8 = h.
Area = bh = 6 * 8 = 48.
