| **A parallelogram and a rectangle have the same side. Find the area of a parallelogram if the acute angle is 30 ° and the area of the rectangle is 26.**

1. A, B, C, D – the tops of the parallelogram. M, N, K, P – the vertices of the rectangle. ∠А = 30 °.

S – area.

2. According to the condition of the problem, the sides of both geometric figures are equal, that is, AB = MN, AD = MР.

3. S rectangle = МN х МР = 26 cm². Therefore AB x AD = 26 cm².

4. From the vertex B of the parallelogram, draw the height HВ. In a right-angled triangle ABN, it is a leg opposite an angle of 30 °.

Therefore, BH = 1/2 AB.

5. S parallelogram = AD x BH = AD x AB / 2 = 26: 2 = 13 cm².
