### How do you get the area of a parallelogram that has two different height measurements?

The area of a parallelogram is the base times the height; the height must be measured perpendicular to the base. If you correctly measure the height perpendicular to the base and you get different measurements, then you are NOT dealing with a parallelogram.

base*height

### The height of a parallelogram is the length of its?

The height is the length of its altitude.

### Is it ever possible for the height of a parallelogram to be one of the parallelogram's sides?

YES. A square is a parallelogram and, its height is one of the sides. (Same goes for every rectangle, not only squares.)

### What angle does the height intersect with the base of a parallelogram?

The height is a perpendicular angle from the base. The sides of the parallelogram are slanted tho and this will vary for every parallelogram. To find the height you typically make a triangle with one of the slanted sides.

### Find the area of parallelogram?

To find the area of a parallelogram, multiply the length of the base by the height. The height should be perpendicular to the base.

### If a parallelogram has an area of 115 square units and a base length of 12 what is the height of the parallelogram to the nearest hundredth?

To find the height of a parallelogram, you divide the area by the base length. So in this case, the height of the parallelogram would be 115/12 = 9.58 to the nearest hundredth.

### What is the area of a parallelogram with a base of meters and a height of meters?

What is the area of a parallelogram with a base of 4 meters and a height of 10 meters?

### How many altitudes equal in the parallelogram?

The single altitude of a parallelogram is its perpendicular height

### What is the area of a parallelogram with these measurements?

Area of a parallelogram in square units = base*height

### What is the approximate area of the parallelogram?

To find the area of a parallelogram, multiply the base by the height.

### What happens to the area of a parallelogram when you double the height and the base?

The area of the parallelogram is quadrupled.
