Translate the coordinates so that one of them is at the origin, doing so does not change the area of the parallelogram, but allows us to find the area.

In this case I will add the vector (0,2) to each vertex which gives,

(0,0),(5,0),(-3,3),(2,3)

let

Now the area of the parallelogram is the determinant of the matrix formed by the column vectors (5,0) and (-3,3),

$$ \begin{vmatrix} 5 & -3 \\ 0 & 3 \end{vmatrix}=15 $$

Your Answer

Surround your text in *italics* or **bold**, to write a math equation use, for example, $x^2+2x+1=0$ or $$\beta^2-1=0$$

Use LaTeX to type formulas and markdown to format text. See example.
