# Area of parallelogram calculator

To calculate the area of a parallelogram, you need to know the length of its base and the height perpendicular to that base. The formula for calculating the area of a parallelogram is:

Area = base x height

Here is how you can use this formula to calculate the area of a parallelogram:

1. Measure the length of the base of the parallelogram.
2. Measure the height of the parallelogram from the base to the opposite side.
3. Multiply the length of the base by the height of the parallelogram to get the area.

### Alternatively, you can use the following steps:

1. Square the length of one of the sides of the parallelogram.
2. Multiply the result by the sine of the angle between that side and the adjacent side.
3. This will give you the area of the parallelogram.

You can also use online calculators to quickly calculate the area of a parallelogram by entering the required values.

### Area of parallelogram step step

To find the area of a parallelogram, follow these steps:

1. Measure the base and height of the parallelogram. Let’s call the base b and the height h.
2. Multiply the base and height to get the area: A = b * h.

That’s it! The resulting value will be the area of the parallelogram in the same units used to measure the base and height.
