A parallelogram ABCD has perimeter equal to 124. Let E be the foot of the perpendicular from A to BC, and let F be the foot of the perpendicular from A to CD. If AE=7 and AF=24, what is the area of the parallelogram?

since area = base * height,

oops. hit wrong key. 24*AB = 7*BC but AB+BC = 124/2 = 62, so 24(62-BC) = 7BC BC = 48 AB = 14 Area = 24*14 = 7*48 = 336

thank you
