## How to calculate the area of a Parallelogram.

It’s very simple to calculate the area of a Parallelogram, you just need to use the following formula.

A = b x h

Where

A = The Area

b = The length of the base

h = The height

Lets try an example

## Example

You’ve been asked to calculate the area of a Parallelogram, you measure the **base and find it to be 10 meters** and the **height to be 5 meters**.

Find the area using the formula

A = **b** x **h**

A = **10m** x **5m**

A = 50m^{2}

The answer is 50m^{2}. Fifty meters squared
