# Find the area of a parallelogram with vertices A(1,5,0), B(6,10,−3), C(−4,5,−2), and D(1,10,−5)? Show steps.

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

Note that it doesn't matter whether the parallelogram is formed by the vertices A, B, C, D in this order or by the vertices A, B, D. C in this order, any diagonal of the parallelogram divides it in two triangles with equal areas. Then

Repeating the coordinates of the points of

A(1,5,0)

B(6,10,-3)

C(-4,5,-2)

Obtaining sides of the triangle ABC:

Using Heron's Formula
