## Related Questions The formula to find the surface area of a parallelogram is Base*Height. To find the area of a parallelogram, multiply the base by the height. To find the area of a parallelogram, multiply the length of the base by the height. The height should be perpendicular to the base. The area formula for the parallelogram is related to the area formula for a rectangle because you can make the parallelogram into a rectangle to find the area. If you know its area then divide its height into the area which will give the length of the base of the parallelogram To find the area of any parallelogram, whether it be irregular or not, just multiply the base by the height. * Ap = bh  The area of parallelogram is 420cm2 and the height is 35cm. Find the corresponding base. The area of a parallelogram is equal to base times height. You can find the maximum area of a parallelogram by multiplying the length of a short side by the length of a long side. (This would be the area if the parallelogram were a rectangle.)You cannot know the area of a parallelogram if all you know is the length of the sides; you can only know the maximumpossible area. Imagine you slant the parallelogram a lot. The area will decrease, but the side lengths will stay the same. To find the area of a parallelogram you have to multiply the base by the height. Therefore A=17&#8729;13. Find the product of 17 and 13 which is 221. A=221. Therefore the area of the parallelogram is 221u(for units)2.  The aea of a small parallelogram is small.To find out just how small the area is, you must specify how small the par'm is. The side of a triangle or parallelogram used to help find area is called the base. Area is base times height in a parallelogram. In a triangle, it is 1/2 times base times height.   The area of a parallelogram is area=basexheight. So, 15x6=90 square cm. to find the area of a parallelogram you must find the right angle of the shape then you multiply it with the base number and then you get your answer  Area= base*height A=bh A hole= but+hole A=bh The formula for the area of a parallelogram: Base times Height (BH) Area of a parallelogram in square units = length*perpendicular height If you have the lengths of the two sides and a diagonal, then you can use Heron's formula to find the area of one triangle and double it for the area of the parallelogram.If you have two sides and an angle, then area = a*b*sin(C).   Area of parallelogram = base multiplied by height. The height has to be measured vertically.
