i'm posting this problem in the calculus forum because i got this question in a calculus class. It seems like a straightforward area problem, but i don't think that's the case and i can't figure out another way to do the problem using vectors.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"Find the area of the parallelogram with vertices (1,2), (4, 5), (5, 9), and (8, 12)."

any ideas?
