The area of the parallelogram is equal to the product of the height and the base.
Formula: S = a * h,
If you draw a figure, it will be clear that BH is the height (h), and AD is the base (a).
Let’s transform the formula:
S = AD * BH
Hence, to find the height of the parallelogram BH = S / AD, you need to divide the area by the base,
By condition, it is known that:
The area is 187 square centimeters,
The base is (AD) 17 centimeters,
BH = 187/17 = 11 centimeters.
Answer: The height of the parallelogram BH is 11 centimeters.
