Question

The area of a parallelogram is 44.4 square feet and its height is 7.4 feet. What is the length of the base? Do not round your answer.

2 Answer

  • The area of a parallelogram is A=bh

    By isolating b, we can find the value

    A=bh
    b=[tex] \frac{A}{h} [/tex]
    b=[tex] \frac{44.4}{7.4} [/tex]
    b= 6 ft

    The base is 6 ft long
  • Answer:

    The length of base is 6 feet.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given : The area of a parallelogram is 44.4 square feet and its height is 7.4 feet.

    We have to find the length of the base of parallelogram.

    Consider the given parallelogram

    Area = 44.4 ft²

    and height = 7.4 ft

    Area of parallelogram = base × height

    Substitute, we  have,

    44.4 = 7.4 × base

    Divide both side by 7.4 , we have,

    base = 6 ft

    Thus, The length of base is 6 feet.
