# Parallelogram Divided into Triangles: Find A + B

Published on September 7, 2024

This math problem asks to find the sum of the areas of two triangles (A and B) within a parallelogram. The parallelogram is divided into four triangles, with two of them having areas of 2 m² and 5 m². The solution uses the fact that the diagonals of a parallelogram divide it into four triangles of equal area. Therefore, the areas of triangles A and B are also 2 m² and 5 m², respectively. The sum of their areas is 2 m² + 5 m² = 7 m². The answer is b. 7 m².
