I think the parallelogram has height 6 and the sides perpendicular to the height are 9, and the two remaining sides that are not parallel to the height are 2.5.

In that case, you use the formula a=bh, so the answer is 9*6=54.

Actually too there is more to this

Each bag of soil covers 15 square yards. How many bags should the farmer purchase?
