How To Find The Area Of A Parallelogram

Hi, my name is John. i am a math tutor and secondary math teacher. Today I am going to help you with some of the common problems that you'll be seeing in maths. Lets look at the area of the following Parallelogram.The important things to know when we are looking at the area of the parallelogram are the following.You need to know your base let's say 5 centimeters. And you need to know the height from the lowest point of the parallelogram to heighest point let's say that 4 centimeters. Now what we know to remember is that the area of the parallelogram is simply, the height multiplyed by the base. And for us it is simply 4 multiplayed by 5 which is 20, remember that you are net with the centimeters, so the area is 20 centimeters square. Now there are various proofs to show this is the case,if you want remember the area of the parallogram is simply this base is multiplied by this height. So for us to recap is 5 centimeters is multiplyed by 4 centimeters which gives an answer 20 centimeters squared and this how to find the area of the parallelogram. .
