Lesson 1: Area of parallelograms

Finding height of a parallelogram

In this lesson, we learned that the area of a parallelogram equals the base times the height. Given an area of 24 units and a base of 6 units, we used this formula to find the missing height. The answer was 4 units. Isn't math fun?
