Examples, solutions, videos, and worksheets to help grade 5 learn how to find the area of a parallelogram.

To find the area of a parallelogram, you can use the formula:

A = bh

Where:

- A is the area of the parallelogram.
- b, the base is the length of one of the parallel sides of the parallelogram.
- h, the height is the perpendicular distance between the base and its opposite side.

Here are the steps to calculate the area of a parallelogram:

- Measure the length of one of the parallel sides; this will be the base.
- Measure the height, which is the perpendicular distance between the base and its opposite side. Ensure that this measurement is taken from the base to the opposite side, forming a 90-degree angle.
- Use the formula A = bh.

Multiply the length of the base by the height to calculate the area.

Example:

Find the area a parallelogram with a base of 6 units and a height of 4 units.

A = bh

A = 6 units × 4 units

A = 24 square units

So, the area of the parallelogram is 24 square units.
