Given in figure 4, there are 5 parallel lines intersected by 4 other parallel lines. How many unique parallelograms are there in figure 4?
Answer: 60. When two pairs of parallel lines intersect, one parallelogram forms -> number of parallelograms are
vector(4, 2) * vector(5, 2) = 6 * 10 = 60
I'm confused on how the 6 and 10 appeared. I thought dot notation would dictate that the answer be 24? Unless, I am completely mistaken and the two were not written as vectors. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
