**Exercise 4: Creating a Tool That Makes a Parallelogram that has Base and Height Values Inputted by User**This custom-made tool allows the user to plot 2 points. These two points will form a line on which the base of a future parallelogram will be placed. User then inputs parallelogram's base (first) and then height (second).

**For the parallelogram displayed below, slider values of "a" and "b" were used as inputs.**

**Output is a parallelogram that has that inputted base and that inputted height. Another point is outputted is well. This point allows the user to turn the newly constructed parallelogram in any direction.**If you wish, you can use the slope, distance, segment, angle, and/or intersect tools to verify that any parallelogram you construct with this new

**Parallelogram Maker**tool is indeed a parallelogram. Interact with this applet for a few minutes, making sure to use this new tool a few times. Then, complete the task below. (With this tool, you can only input values ranging from 0 - 20).

Without downloading the applet seen above, take what you've learned from this session to create your own

**Parallelogram Maker Tool**that displays the same outputs as the**Parallelogram Maker Tool**in the applet above.
