Solution

Let the height of the parallelogram be x cm.
Then the base of the parallelogram is 2x cm.
It is given that the area of the parallelogram = 512 cm2
So,
Area of a parallelogram = Base x Height
512 cm2 = 2x x x
512 cm2 = 2x2
⇒ x2 = 512 cm22= 256 cm2
⇒ x2 = (16 cm)2
⇒ x = 16 cm
Hence, base = 2x = 2 x 16 = 32 cm and height = x = 16 cm.
