How to find the area of a parallelogram: formula, 2 examples, and their solutions.

Formula

Formula

A = bh

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

Example 1

Example

Solution

b = 9
h = 5

A = 9⋅5

9⋅5 = 45

So the area of the given parallelogram is 45.

Example 2

Example

Solution

b = 11
h = 8

A = 11⋅8

11⋅8 = 88

So the area of the given parallelogram is 88.
