The figure shows a parallelogram inside a rectangle outline:

What is the area of the parallelogram?

It wont Upload though which that is annying

I can't get enough from the description. Copy the picture into google docs, then go into file. Download as PDF, then click the up arrow on the pop up on the bottom left part of your screen. Give it a unique name, making sure you keep the .pdf, and download it to your desktop. Then go to upload the image, and click choose file. Type in the name you gave it, and then you can upload it.

Well to find the Area of a Parallelogram you must use the formula:

A = B * H

But this image doesn't give you the absolute base. So this is a bit difficult but, solvable.

The height is already provided it's \(\frac{1}{3}\)

So to find the base subtract \(\frac{1}{6} and \frac{1}{2}\) because 1/6 is thhe space and 1/2 is the total of that base includuing the space so

\(\frac{1}{2} - \frac{1}{6} \)

Simplify

\(\frac{1}{2} = \frac{3}{6}\)

Then continue

\(\frac{3}{6} - \frac{1}{6}\)

\(= \frac{2}{6}\)

= \(\frac{1}{3}\)

Now that you have the base you can use the formula A = B * H

A = \(\frac{1}{3} * \frac{1}{3}\)

A = \(\frac{1}{9}\)

Hope this helps ;P
