the area of a parallelogram is 507 square cm, and its height is three times its base. find the base and the height.

1. h = 3b
h * b = 507

Substitute 3b for h in second equation and solve for b. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for h. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.
