Find the perimeter of the rectangle in which A = 27 mm2.
Step 1
Find the height.
A = bh
Area of a rectangle
27 = 3h
Substitute 27 for A and 3 for b.
9 mm = h
Step 2
Divide both sides by 3.
Use the base and the height to find the perimeter.
P = 2b + 2h
Perimeter of a rectangle
P = 2(3) + 2(9) = 24 mm
Substitute 3 for b and 9 for h.
Find each measurement.
1. the area of the parallelogram
2. the base of the rectangle in which
A = 136 mm2

Simplify.
Divide both sides by 13.

is 0, then the numerator of the expression
r is
equals 0, and the value of the
r s
entire expression is 0. A calculator tells
us that cos−10 = 90°.
9. d2 = 4a ft
Practice C
1. Possible answer: Draw a segment
showing the height from B to AD and
label it h. The area of a parallelogram is
bh. Since b is known and h = c sin A, a
formula for the area of the parallelogram
is A = bc sin A.

2. Possible answer: A rectangle is a
parallelogram in which the measure of
each angle is 90°. sin 90° = 1. So A = bc
sin A becomes A = bc, the product of the
length and the width of the rectangle.
