## Geometry: Common Core (15th Edition)

The equation for the area of a parallelogram is bh. The area and height are provided, so the length of the base can be found by working backwards: A = bh 24 = b(6) (Divide both sides by 6 to isolate b.) $\frac{24}{6}$ = b$\frac{6}{6}$ 4 = b The length of the base is 4 inches.
