# In Fig. 9.35, find the area of parallelogram ABCD if the area of the shaded triangle is 9 cm².

**Solution:**

Given, area of the shaded triangle is 9 cm²

We have to find the area of the parallelogram ABCD.

__Area of triangle__ = 1/2 × base × height

9 = 1/2 × 3 × h

9(2) = 3 × h

h = 9(2)/3

= 3(2)

h = 6 cm

__Area of parallelogram__ = base × corresponding height

= BE × h

= (3 + 4) × 6

= 7(6)

= 42 cm²

Therefore, the area of parallelogram is 42 cm².
