The height of a parallelogram with an area of 300 square yards and a base of 15 yards and 1 more question A rectangle has verticles W(2,3) X (2,6) Y(7,6) and Z(7,3) Describe how to find the side lengths of the rectangle without graphing

• Math -

For the parallelogram, the area is base times height

so, h * 15 = 300

the height is 20

For number 2 use the distance formula.

2,3 to 2,6 is 3 units.

2,6 to 7,6 is 5 units

7,6 to 7,3 is 3

2,3 to 7,3 is 5

So it is a rectangle 5 x 3
