The area of a parallelogram can be calculated usingĀ  the formula Area = base * height If we substitute in our known numbers we get: 49 2/5 = 5 1/5 (b) To solve this equation, we must divide both sides by 5 1/5. to get rid of the coefficient on the right side of the equation. 9 1/2 = bĀ  Therefore, the base of the parallelogram shaped window is 9 1/2 feet.
