It is in flat shape and opposite sides are parallel and exactly equal in length. There opposite angles are equal too. A parallelogram is a type of quadrilateral in which opposite sides are parallel and equal.
Area of Parallelogram = Base x Height
Ex: Area and Base of a parallelogram is 560 cm² and 16cm respectively. Find the height of the parallelogram.
(a) 8960 cm² (b) 32cm (c) 35cm (d) 35cm²
Answer: (c) 35cm
Area of parallelogram = Base x Height
560 = 16 x Height
Height = 560/16 = 35 cm
Ex: Find Area and perimeter of a parallelogram?
Area = 6 x 12 = 72 sq. units
Perimeter = 2(6 + 13) = 2 x 19 = 38 units.
