It is base x height for the parallelogram.

That is twice the area of a triangle which is: 1/2 base x height.

(Base and height being the same for both cases).

## Related Questions Area of a triangle = 0.5*base*perpendicular height Area of a parallelogram = base*perpendicular height 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 the heights and bases are the same, then the triangle is half the area of the parallelogram. If the heights and bases are the same, then the triangle is half the area of the parallelogram. The parallelogram has twice the area of the triangle if their bases are the same and their heights are the same. Area triangle = 1/2 base x height. Area parallelogram = base x height. I don't know about the relation in the perimeters of a triangle and a parallelogram but if a triangle is on the same base on which the parallelogram is and the triangle is between the same parallel lines of the parallelogram, then the area of the triangle will be half the area of the parallelogram. That is, area of a triangle = 1/2 area of a parallelogram if the triangle is on the same base and between the same parallel lines. They need not be. A bigger triangle can have the same area as a small parallelogram.They need not be. A bigger triangle can have the same area as a small parallelogram.They need not be. A bigger triangle can have the same area as a small parallelogram.They need not be. A bigger triangle can have the same area as a small parallelogram. you do it because the triangle is half the size of the parallelogram The formula for area of a parallelogram is the base times the height (BXH=Area). The formula for area of a parallelogram is bh. Base times height. Do you know the formula for the area of a triangle ? Pick a base-length and a height for your triangle so that 1/2 (base x height) = 20. Do you know the formula for the area of a parallelogram ? Pick a base-length and a height for your parallelogram so that (base x height) = 20. We're having a problem understanding your difficulty. Of course, if you don't know the formulas for area . . . They involve only the base and vertical height.The formula for a triangle is half that for the corresponding parallelogram. To get the area it half breadth by height. A simplified thought on this is because the formula for the area of a parallelogram is length by width, and a triangle would be half of this They both use perpendicular height and are in square units. Area of a trapezoid = 0.5*(sum of parallel sides)*perpendicular height Area of a parallelogram = base*perpendicular height The formula for the area of a parallelogram is A = b * h. Or area equals base times height.   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 difference is you bxh for parallelogramand you (bxh)x2 fortrianglea triangle has 4 sides and a parallelogram has 3 obviously they have different areas silly goose. I would know i go to harvard math 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). Because base times height = the area of a parallelogram and a triangle's area is half that of the parallelogram that the triangle exactly fits into. It depends on how the triangle and the circle are related - information that was not provided in the question. A formula is needed to find the area of a parallelogram. It is a very simple formula which notates Area = base x height. Because the triangle is three sided and a parallelogram is six sided. Hope I helped. WINNIE THE POOH The area of a parallelogram is base x height and the area of a triangle is 1/2 x base x height. So the area of a parallelogram will always be 2 times bigger than a triangle with the same base and height.
