Find the area of the paralellogram with vertices P_{1}, P_{2}, P_{3}, and P_{4}. *Not all pairs of vertices will give rise to a side.

P_{1}= (1, 2, -1)

P_{2}= (4, 2, -3)

P_{3}= (6, -5, 2)

P_{4}= (9, -5, 0)

2. Relevant equations

||U X V || is the area of the parallelogram having U≠0 and V≠0 as adjacent sides.

3. The attempt at a solution

How do you know which set of points will create a vector that are adjacent to each other?
