The area of a rectangle
Because the area of a parallelogram is length times perpendicular height and the area of a rectangle is also length times perpendicular height
The area of a parallelogram is the length times the vertical height. In a rectangle, the vertical height is the same as the width so the area is length times width.
The area of a rectangle is simply length times width (l*w) while the area of a parallelogram is the base length times the height (b*h)
Rectangle Area of parallelogram = Base * Height Area of rectangle = Base * Height
a parallelogram is a tilted rectangle
It is base times perpendicular height.
Area of a triangle = 0.5*base*perpendicular height Area of a parallelogram = base*perpendicular height
Base times height. Just like a rectangle.
of course base times height for a square or rectangle. but for a trapezoid a= h x "b1+b2"
