The height of a parallelogram is 5 feet more than its base. If the area of the parallelogram is 204 square feet, find its base and height.

  • Geometry -

    base of a ||gm is
    base x height

    base --- x
    height --- x+5
    s(x+5) = 204
    x^2 + 5x - 204 = 0
    (x-12)(x+17) = 0
    x = 12 or a negative

    base is 12, height is 17
