    Start by making an equation.

    x + 5 = height, where x = the base.

    11 = x

    If 11 = x, substitute 11 into the first equation.

    11 + 5 = 16

    The height is 16, and the base is 11.

    Now to find the area, multiply the height by the base.

    16 x 11 = 176 square units

    Area of a parallelogram (A) = base(b) X height(h)

    A = bh

    A= b(b + 5)

    A= 11( 11+5)

    A= 11(16)

    A = 176 un²

    Its just 11 x 16 = 176
