    Help paralellogram finding the area

    would really appreciate it if somebody good answer this ,

    ABCD is a parallelgram
    AB=12cm
    BC = 8cm
    the perpendicular distance of the line DC from the line AB is 7cm

    (a)Work out the area of the parallelogram
    (b) work out the perpendicular distance of the line AD from the line BC

    And this pleas e, I hope tehre are some good maths people on please

    the cross section of the solid prism is a right angle triangle. the triangle has a base of 6cm and a height of 8cm
    the length of the solid prism is 20cm
    (a) work out the volum of the solid prism

    (b) the solid prism is made of metal
    the mass of 1cm(cubed) of metal is 6cm
    work out the total mass of the solid prism

    the cross section of the solid prism is a right angle triangle. the triangle has a base of 6cm and a height of 8cm
    the length of the solid prism is 20cm
    (a) work out the volum of the solid prism

    (b) the solid prism is made of metal
    the mass of 1cm(cubed) of metal is 6cm
    work out the total mass of the solid prism
    The area of a parallelogram is calculated by:

    a = base \cdot height

    If the base is AB = 12 cm and the height of AB is h = 7 cm the area is:

    a = 12 \cdot 7 = 84\ cm^2

    If the base is BC = 8 cm and the area didn't change you'll get the height by:

    84\ cm^2=8\ cm\cdot h~\implies~h=\dfrac{84\ cm^2}{8\ cm} = 10.5\ cm

    To the second question:
    1. The given length must be the legs of the right triangle (not the hypotenuse!)
    2. The area of this triangle is a_{\Delta}=\frac12\cdot base \cdot height With your values you get: a_{\Delta} = 24\ cm^2

    3. The volume of a prism is calculated by:

    V = area_{base} \cdot height_{prism}
    Plug in the values you know to get the volume.

    The following question must be wrong: A mass of metall measured in cm is a mess.
