# Area of a Parallelogram Worksheets

How to Find the Area of a Parallelogram - Any shape that has the word parallel in it explicitly tells the reader or the viewer that the shape has two opposite pair of parallel sides. A parallelogram is a two-dimensional, closed figure with straight sides. It seems like a quadrilateral, which is a four-sided shape. Because the parallelogram has its opposite sides parallel, the angles that are formed at these parallel lines are also congruent. Examples of parallelogram includes a rhombus, three quadrilaterals, a square, and a rectangle. These are the specific types of parallelograms. If you take notice of these parallelograms, you will notice that all of these have length, base, and height. Perhaps, you know the basic protocol of finding the area of the parallelogram, which involves the use of all three measures. The formula to find the area of a parallelogram is : Base x Height. All you have to do is out in the values of the base and height of the parallelogram, and you will have the answer.
