To find the area you would first have to find the height of the parallelogram.

Height:

Sin60=x/12cm

.866=x/12cm

10.4cm=x

With the height you can then find the area

Area = Base * Height

Area=16cm*10.4cm

Area=166.3cm^2

### If two sides of a parallelogram is 35 degrees what is the measurement of the other two sides?

Sides can't be 'degrees'. Those must be anglesthat you're talking about.If two of the angles inside a parallelogram are both 35 degrees, then they must beat opposite corners, and each of the other two corners is an angle of 145 degrees.

### Does a parallelogram have a 90 degree angle?

No , a parallelogram can not have a 90 Degree angle .Reason : A Parallelogram can be defined as a quadrilateral whose two s sides are parallel to each other and all the four angles at the vertices are not 90 degrees or right angles, then the quadrilateral is called a parallelogram.

### What is a parrallelogram with equal sides?

A parallelogram with equal length sides is a RHOMBUS. A parallelogram with equal sides and the four angles are at 90 degrees is a SQUARE.

### How do you find an angle of a parallelogram using sides?

You cannot. A parallelogram can be flexed: the angles can be altered without affecting the lengths of the sides.

### 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.

### Can you draw a parallelogram that is not a rectangle?

Yes. Rectangles have sides made of 90 degree angles, but a parallelogram can have sides make of other angle measurements so long as opposing sides are parallel to each other. Slant one pair of sides, making sure to keep all opposite sides parallel to each other. Slanting one pair of sides, for instance, at a 45 degree angle, while keeping the other pair of sides at a flat 180 degrees will create a parallelogram that is not a rectangle.

### What are the diagonals of a parallelogram?

The diagonals arenotthe sides. They're lines you draw from one angle of the parallelogram to the angle opposite it. So if you have parallelogram ABCD, your diagonals are AC and BD, because AB, BC, CD, and DA are all sides.
