# What is perimeter and area of parallelogram?

## What is perimeter and area of parallelogram?

The area A of a parallelogram is given by the formula. A=bh , where b is the length of one base and h is the height. (The figure below shows how to find the height of a parallelogram.) The perimeter of a parallelogram is the sum of the lengths of its four sides.

**How do you find the area of a triangle with a parallelogram?**

We see that each triangle takes up precisely one half of the parallelogram. From this, we see that the area of a triangle is one half the area of a parallelogram, or the area of a parallelogram is two times the area of a triangle.

### What is a formula of perimeter of parallelogram?

The formula of the perimeter of parallelogram = 2(Length+Breadth).

**What is the formula for parallelograms?**

Where, b = base of the parallelogram (AB) h = height of the parallelogram. a = side of the parallelogram (AD)…Area = ½ × d1 × d2 sin (y)

All Formulas to Calculate Area of a Parallelogram | |
---|---|

Using Base and Height | A = b × h |

Using Trigonometry | A = ab sin (x) |

Using Diagonals | A = ½ × d1 × d2 sin (y) |

#### What makes parallelogram a triangle?

A parallelogram can always be decomposed into two identical triangles by a segment that connects opposite vertices. To produce a parallelogram, we can join a triangle and its copy along any of the three sides, so the same pair of triangles can make different parallelograms.

**How do you find area of perimeter?**

Calculate the perimeter by adding all four sides together. The area of a square is the amount of surface the shape covers and is measured in square units. You can calculate the area of a square by using both the length of one side and its perimeter. Divide the perimeter length by 4 to get the measurement for each side of the square.

## How do you calculate the volume of a parallelogram?

Answer Wiki. The volume of a prism is V = Bh, where B is the area of the base shape and h is the height of the prism. Find the area of the parallelogram that is the base, length x width, then multiply this by the height of the prism. l x w x h.

**What is the formula for a parallelogram?**

A parallelogram is a 4-sided shape formed by two pairs of parallel lines. Opposite sides are equal in length and opposite angles are equal in measure. To find the area of a parallelogram, multiply the base by the height. The formula is: A = B * H where B is the base, H is the height, and * means multiply.

### What is the length of a parallelogram?

A parallelogram has sides of length 25.9 cm and 32.5 cm. The longer diagonal has a length 57.8 cm.
