Hi,
Please can anyone help Test 1 q. 4e, they have only given one measurement, cannot make out even after looking at answer . is the 2nd measurement missing ie height. The value of x is required... (straight line there)

It is a parallelogram.

Tried to draw it, if anyone can help. (drawing doesn't come out as intended) supposed to be slanted.
All other shapes have 2 measurements to go by.

Hi,

The Area is given above the parallelogram = 90cm2
Base measurement is given = 15cm

Area = base x perpendicular height.

So divide the area by the base to get the height:

90/15 = 6

Therefore x=6

Hth

Hi,
Thanks for replying, was giving up hope for an answer and wondering whether to email the publishers as there definately is no 90 cm above our shape D on page 5. Looks like a printing mistake... wonder if anyone else had this.

I knew something was not right as was wondering where they got the 90cm2 from... looked at the answer.

Thanks again.
