3. 216 cm2 triangle, he used the length between the
4. 91 m 2 altitude and the base, rather than the actual
5. 80 cm2 base.
6. Yes, the rectangle and parallelogram have 39. 10 sq. units
the same area because if we cut off the 40. 7 sq. units
triangle on the right side of the 41. 44 ft2
parallelogram, we can move it over to the 42. 97.5 m2
left and make the parallelogram into a 43. 63 yd2
rectangle. Then they would have the same 44. 121.5 yd2
dimensions so their areas would be the 45. 129.5 yd2
same. 46. 20 in
