# The sides of the parallelogram are 2 cm and 5 cm. The height drawn to the smaller side is 3 cm.

**The sides of the parallelogram are 2 cm and 5 cm. The height drawn to the smaller side is 3 cm. Find another height.**

We know that a parallelogram is a quadrilateral in which the opposite sides are parallel and equal, respectively. It is also known that in order to find the area of any parallelogram, it is necessary to know its side and the height drawn to a given height.

In this case, the formula for finding the area is as follows: S = a * h (a) where a is the side of the parallelogram, h (a) is the height drawn to side a.

Therefore, we know the side equal to 2 cm, and the height of the 3 cm long side lowered to this side.

Then S = a * h (a) = 3 * 2 = 5

Then you can find the second height for this parallelogram, S = b * h (b)

S = b * h (b)

5 = 5 * h (b)

h (b) = 5/5 = 1

Answer: the second height is 1 cm.
