Find the Area of Parallelograms You can use what you know about the area of rectangles to find the area of a parallelogram. Area of rectangles is very useful! 7 12 Cut the parallelogram. Move one piece to make a rectangle. h b Very Important: The height of a figure is always measured perpendicular to the base of the figure. 12 The length of the base is still 12 units. The height is still 7 units. Now you can find the area of the rectangle. A!b"h A ! 12 " 7 A ! 84 The area of the rectangle is 84 square units. You made the rectangle from the parallelogram. So, the area of the parallelogram is also 84 square units. The formula for the area of a parallelogram: A!b"h page 316 E x am p l E Find the area of the parallelogram. 5 in. b ! 6 in.
