a parallegram has a height of 4 meters and sides of 5 meters and 7 meters. What is its area in square meters?

    ok 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

    If your figure has "sides" of two different lengths (5 & 7), it is a trapezoid rather than a parallelogram.
