Area Of Parallelogram

A Parallelogram is a Combination of two pair of Parallel Lines. Opposite sides and opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal in measure and we can calculate area of parallelogram by using following formula
area of parallelogram = b * h,
Here ‘b’ is equal to base and ‘h’ is equal to height,
Suppose a base of parallelogram is 12 centimeter and height is 5 centimeter, then
The area of a parallelogram = base * height,
= 12 * 5,
= 60 cm2.

The area of a parallelogram is involve in other kind of questions also like a question, where we have to find out height of parallelogram and the area of a parallelogram is given like–
Suppose the area of a parallelogram is 24 centimeter2, base of a parallelogram is 4 centimeter and we have to find out height of parallelogram, then–
The area of a parallelogram = base * height,
= > 24 = 4 * height,
= > height = (24 / 4),
= > height = 6 centimeter,
So, we can use this area of parallelogram formula in this kind of questions also.

Therefore basic steps for evaluating area of parallelograms is–
Step 1: First of all, we calculate base of given parallelogram by using the measuring technique.
Step 2: After evaluation of a base, now we calculate height of given parallelogram by using the measuring technique.
Step 3: After first two step, now we apply the following formula for area of parallelograms –
Area of parallelogram = base * height,
Like we have given a parallelogram figure, then we apply measuring technique –

Step 1: By measuring technique, we get base 8 meter.
Step 2: By measuring technique, we get height 6 meter.
Step 3: Now we apply following formula for area of parallelogram–
Area of parallelogram = base * height,
= 8 * 6,
= 48,
So, area of parallelogram is 48 m2.
This is how we find the area of a parallelogram.

Perimeter of Parallelogram

Let us define Parallelogram first, a parallelogram can be defined as a quadrilateral containing two pairs of parallel sides. The opposite sides of parallelogram are equals to each other and these equal and opposite sides are parallel to each other.
Now we will see what is perimeter of parallelogram. Perimeter can be defined as the sum of all sides of parallel...Read More
