### What is Meant by Area of a Parallelogram?

In mathematics, the parallelogram is a four-sided shape. It is a special type of quadrilateral. A parallelogram has four sides with two pairs of parallel sides of equal measure. Since it is a two-dimensional figure, it is measured using area and perimeter. The area of a parallelogram is defined as the region occupied by the shape parallelogram. Since, both the rectangle and the parallelogram have similar properties, the formula to calculate the parallelogram area is equal to the rectangle area. Thus the formula to calculate the area of a parallelogram is given by

Area of a parallelogram  = Base × Height  Square units
