# In a parallelogram ABCD, it is being given that AB = 10 cm and the altitudes corresponding to the sides AB and AD are DL = 6 cm and BM = 8 cm, respectively. Find AD.

Given

AB = 10 cm

DL = 6 cm

BM = 8 cm

Here, Area of parallelogram = base x height

In the given figure if we consider AB as base Area = AB x DL

If we consider DM as base Area = AD x BM

Area = AB x DL = AD x BM

10 x 6 = AD x 8
