a parallelogram obviously has two sets of parallel sides so a basic and short answer would be A=BH or area equals base times height. a trapezoid though not completely a parallelogram it still has two parallel sides so here the formula for that too area equals top times bottom divided by two times height again... or A=T=B/2*H , well there you go.
