find the perimeter and area of each parallelogram Round to the nearest tenth if necessary

figure is exactly like that

note the 30-60-90 triangle formed in the upper part of the parallelogram ... the altitude of the parallelogram is the long leg of the 30-60-90 triangle.

ratios of the sides of a 30-60-90 triangle ...

short leg = $x$
long leg = $x\sqrt{3}$
hypotenuse = $2x$

finally, area of a parallelogram is $A = bh$

3. im looking for the area AND parallelogram and i dont get how you get the x\sqrt{3}

If you have no knowledge of the properties of a 30-60-90 right triangle, then you shouldn't have been assigned this problem.

5. ok ty but now all the problem that i have here are 30 60 90 righ triangles some contain different measurements

6. hi i kind of get it now i got the answer 780 anyone can tell me if i got it right?? sorry for double post

7. It is fairly well known that the area of a parallelogram is $A=a\cdot b\cdot \sin(\theta)$ there $a~\&~b$ are the lengths of two adjacent sides and $\theta$ is the angle between then sides.

8. o wow confusing me.. you give me a different formula?? is my answer right?

The area of your parallelogram is $(20)(30)\sin\left(60^0\right)$.
