# How is the formula for the parallelogram related to the area formula of the rectangle?

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.

### What is the shape that has the same formula for area as a parallelogram?

A rectangle and a parallelogram have the same formula for area: The area of a parallelogram is given: area = length × width where: length is the length of one of the sides of the parallelogram; and width 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…

### How is the formula for the area of a triangle related to the formula for an area of a parallelogram?

### Can you deduce the area of a parallelogram from the area of a rectangle?

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.

### How is the formula for the area of a trapezoid related to the formula for a area of a parallelogram?

### What is the area of a four sided parallelogram?

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

### What is the area formula for a parallelogram?

Area = Length x width It's the same as the area for a rectangle - base times height. If you think about it, a parallelogram is a rectangle with two triangles on either side - one with its base on top, one with its base on bottom. Through various identities, we know that these two triangles are congruent. So the area is the sum of the small rectangle plus the two triangles, which ends up…

### How do you work out area of a parallelogram?

The formula for the area of a parallelogram is heightxbase the reason that that is the formula is because it has th same height on both sides and the base stays the same even if it was on a unique angle and that's how you get the area of a parallelogram. The area of a parallelogram is base time height.
