In the standard (x, y) coordinate plane below, the points (0, 0), (10, 0), (13, 6), and (3, 6) are the vertices of a parallelogram. What is the area, in square coordinate units, of the parallelogram?

1. 30
2. 60
3. 30√3
4. 30√5
5. 60√5

The area of a parallelogram is given by bh, where b is the length of the base and h is the height.

For the parallelogram, b = 10 and h = 6.

So, Area = bh = 10 x 6 = 60.
