# Area of a Parallelogram Calculator

The area of the parallelogram is calculated on the basis of the number of square units inside the polygon. A 4-sided shape formed by two pairs of parallel lines is called as parallelogram. And also it should measure opposite sides and the opposite angles equally. Therefore to find the area of a parallelogram, multiply the base by the height.

Area of Parallelogram = $b \times h $

Here b is base and h is the height.
