For a parallelogram, take the base times the height. For a trapezoid, take the smaller base and times it by the height.

Can a trapezoid and parallelogram have the same area?

Yes, certainly. The trapezoid area is one half sum of bases times height and the parallelogram area is base times height If the base of the parallelogram is equal to 1/2 the sum of he trapezoid bases, they have the same area


How area of parellogram help find area of trapezoid?

A parallelogram is a degenerate trapezoid: as the longer of the parallel sides of a trapezoid shrinks to the length of the shorter parallel side, the trapezoid becomes a parallelogram. It is truer to say that the area of a trapezoid helps to find the area of a parallelogram: area_trapezoid = mean_average_of_parallel_sides x distance_between_them = 1/2 sum_parallel_side_lengths x distance_between_them When the parallel sides are of equal length this becomes: area = (1/2 x 2 x length_of_parallel_sides) x distance_between_them = length_of_parallel_sides x distance_between_them = area_parallelogram
