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
