B Trig Problem Altitudes of Parallelogram

  • Thread starter Trepid
  • Start date
Basically the altitudes of a parallelogram have two lengths, 8 and 10 and they intersect at an angle whose sine is 1/4. I'm attempting to find the area of the parallelogram.

I'm having trouble creating a good picture of it. Seeing if I could receive some help, thanks!
