Finding the area of a parallelogram in two dimensions involves the area determinant of a 2x2 matrix, but if we're given a parallelogram in three dimensions we can use the cross product area. The cross product area is a technique often used in vector calculus. The cross product is found using methods of 3x3 determinants, and these methods are necessary for finding the cross product area.
