If the heights and bases are the same, then the triangle is half the area of the parallelogram.

If the heights and bases are the same, then the triangle is half the area of the parallelogram.

Only by the definition of a perimeter.

Area of a triangle = 0.5*base*perpendicular height Area of a parallelogram = base*perpendicular height

Both of them got 3 corners. A triangle always have a total of 180 degrees.

No, a parallelogram is not a triangle because a parallelogram has four sides whereas a triangle has only three sides

The parallelogram has twice the area of the triangle if their bases are the same and their heights are the same. Area triangle = 1/2 base x height. Area parallelogram = base x height.

A parallelogram is two triangle together.

The answer depends on how the parallelogram in the triangle is constructed.

I don't know about the relation in the perimeters of a triangle and a parallelogram but if a triangle is on the same base on which the parallelogram is and the triangle is between the same parallel lines of the parallelogram, then the area of the triangle will be half the area of the parallelogram. That is, area of a triangle = 1/2 area of a parallelogram if the triangle is on the same base and between the same parallel lines.

you do it because the triangle is half the size of the parallelogram

No - a triangle by definition has 3 sides. A parallelogram has 4.
