feet. The measure of the angle between these sides
is 57°. Find the area of the parallelogram, to the
nearest square foot.

4. Gregory wants to build a garden in the shape of an
isosceles triangle with one of the congruent sides
equal to 12 yards. If the area of his garden will be
55 square yards, find, to the nearest tenth of a
degree, the three angles of the triangle.
-
2. The two sides and included angle of a
parallelogram are 18, 22, and 60°. Find its exact
area in simplest form.

5. A farmer has determined that a crop of strawberries
yields a yearly profit of \$1.50 per square yard. If
strawberries are planted on a triangular piece of
land whose sides are 50 yards, 75 yards, and 100
yards, how much profit, to the nearest hundred
dollars, would the farmer expect to make from this
piece of land during the next harvest?

9. In the accompanying diagram of parallelogram
ABCD, m∠A = 30, AB = 10, and AD = 6. What is
the area of parallelogram ABCD?
7. A triangular plot of land has sides that measure 5
meters, 7 meters, and 10 meters. What is the area
of this plot of land, to the nearest tenth of a square
meter?
-
8. The accompanying diagram shows a triangular plot
of land that is part of Fran's garden. She needs to
change the dimensions of this part of the garden,
but she wants the area to stay the same. She
increases the length of side AC to 22.5 feet. If
angle A remains the same, by how many feet
should side AB be decreased to make the area of
the new triangular plot of land the same as the
current one?
10. The accompanying diagram shows a triangular plot
of land located in Moira’s garden.
