    Given:

    Length of the parallelogram = 25 feet

    Width of the parallelogram = 20 feet

    Perpendicular distance from the long side to the opposite long side = 18 feet.

    To find:

    The area of the piece of land which is a parallelogram.

    Solution:

    Area of a parallelogram:

    Area=Base\times height

    Let the longer side, 25 feet is the base, then the height of the parallelogram is 18 feet. So, the area of the parallelogram is

    Area=25\times 18

    Area=450

    Therefore, the area of the piece of land is 450 square feet.
