In an ABCD.EFGH cuboid with AB = 4 cm, BC = 3 cm, and CG = 5 cm there is a parallelogram OBFPH with O is located at the center of ABCD and P is located at the center of EFGH. The distance between the lines HO and PB is ....
A.

cm
B.
cm
C.
cm
D.
cm
E.
cm

By making use of the parallelogram formula, I got

. Do you guys get the same answer as me or any of the options?

### Re: [ASK] Parallelogram in Cuboid

hi

???  FPH is a straight line and parallelograms only have four not five vertices.  I think OBFPH is a trapezium.

Arhh.  That's better.

FP = PH = 2.5 by Pythag.  PO = 5 and angle OPH is 90 degrees so OH is given by

Angle PHO = PBO = alpha
