    Re: parallelogram area and height of one side

    the area is just the length of the longest side times the altitude, what I think you're calling the height of the shortest side.

    So here it would be 14x7 = 98 cm^2.

    The area of a parallelogram is $A=h_b\cdot b$ where $b$ is the base and $h_b$ is the height on that base.

    From the given $70=A$ & $h_y\cdot 14=?$ Solve for $h_y$
