Area of a Parallelogram

How to find the area of a parallelogram: formula, examples, and their solutions.

Formula

A = bh. A: Area of a parallelogram, b: Base, h: Height

A = bh

A: Area of a parallelogram
b: Base
h: Height

Example 1

Find the area of the given parallelogram. Base: 9, Height: 5.

b = 9
h = 5

So A = 9⋅5.

9⋅5 = 45

So A = 45.

Example 2

Find the area of the given parallelogram. Base: 11, Height: 8.

b = 11
h = 8

So A = 11⋅8.

11⋅8 = 88

So A = 88.
