Because the area of a parallelogram is length times perpendicular height and the area of a rectangle is also length times perpendicular height

The area of a parallelogram is the length times the vertical height. In a rectangle, the vertical height is the same as the width so the area is length times width.

The area of a rectangle is simply length times width (l*w) while the area of a parallelogram is the base length times the height (b*h)

A rectangle and a parallelogram have the same formula for area:The area of a parallelogram is given:area = length &Atilde;&mdash; widthwhere:length is the length of one of the sides of the parallelogram; andwidth is the perpendicular distance between the side chosen for the length and its parallel side.In the formula for the area of a rectangle, the width (perpendicular distance between the sides given for the length) is also the length of the other two sides.

Area of a triangle = 0.5*base*perpendicular height Area of a parallelogram = base*perpendicular height

Yes it can. For one thing, a rectangle is a parallelogram so of course the answer is trivially yes. Now take a parallelogram that is not a rectangle. Area =basexheight These values can certainly be the same as the lenght of the sides of a rectangle.

draw a parallelogram which is not a rectangle.verify that its area is equal to the rectangle on the same base and altitude

The formula for area of a parallelogram is the base times the height (BXH=Area).

A big parallelogram has more area than a small rectangle. A small parallelogram has less area than a big rectangle. The question is a lot like asking: "Which one is older, a dog or a cat ?"

The formula for area of a parallelogram is bh. Base times height.

No. The area of a parallelogram varies infinitely from the maximum, as a rectangle, to virtually zero and the angles vary infinitely from 90 degrees to virtually zero or 180 degrees as the height of the parallelogram is reduced. There is no way to deduce the area of the parallelogram at any particular point in this transition by using the area of the rectangle alone.

Since a square is a rectangle, you can use the formula for the area of a rectangle to calculate the area of a square. The only difference is that length and width will be the same.

Calculation of an area depends on what type of area you are trying to measure. The formula for a square (s2) is different for that of a rectangle (lw), which is different from that of parallelogram (bh). See the list of related articles for how to calculate various areas.

Not necessarily. In fact, if a rectangle and parallelogram have the same base and height, their areas are equal.

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 the same as for a rectangle. base x height Just remember that the height is a line drawn perpendicular to the base, not the other side length.

The formula for the area of a parallelogram is A = b * h. Or area equals base times height.

If a parallelogram is four sided then it can be a square ,rhomobus,rectangle. the area of square = side * side the area of rectangle = length * breadth the area of rhombus = 1/2 (diagonal1 + diagonal2) And also, a parallelogram is always four sided.And if it is none of these ,then are of parallelogram =length * breadth
