A parallelogram

The area of a parallelogram is 338 m2. If its altitude is twice the corresponding base, find the base and the altitude.

Correct answer:

a =  13 m
h =  26 m

Step-by-step explanation:

S=338 m2  S=a h h=2a  S = a 2a S = 2 a2  a=S/2=338/2=13 m
h=2 a=2 13=26=26 m   Verifying Solution:   S2=a h=13 26=338 m2
