**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 cm

^{2}.

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 centimeter

^{2}, 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 = ($\frac{24}{4}$),

= > 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 m

^{2}.

This is how we find the

**area of a parallelogram**.
