# Q. 5.    $\inline PQRS$ is a parallelogram (Fig 11.23). $\inline QM$ is the height from $\inline Q$ to $\inline SR$ and $\inline QN$ is the height from $\inline Q$ to $\inline PS$. If$\inline SR=12 \; cm$ and             $\inline QM=7.6 \; cm.$ Find:                 (a) the area of the parallelogram $\inline PQRS$

R Riya

We know that

Area of parallelogram  $= base \times height$

Here,

Base of parallelogram = 12 cm

and

Height of parallelogram = 7.6 cm

$\Rightarrow 12 \times 7.6 = 91.2 \ cm^2$

Therefore, area of parallelogram is  $91.2 \ cm^2$
