Area of Parallelograms - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

The area of parallelograms formula is derived from the area of a rectangle. By drawing an altitude from one vertex in a parallelogram and translating the right triangle, a rectangle is formed. Therefore, to calculate the area of a parallelogram, multiply a height by the corresponding base. The corresponding base is the side perpendicular to the height. Related topics include area of trapezoids and rhombuses.
