## How to Calculate the Area of a Parallelogram Part 2

In the previous post, we have learned why the **area of a parallelogram** is the product of its base and height. In this post, we are going to discuss a few problems involving base, height, and area of parallelograms.

**Example 1**

Find the area of a parallelogram whose base is 12 cm and whose height is 18 cm.

*Solution*

Area = base × height

Area = 12 cm × 18 cm

Area = 216 sq. cm. Continue Reading
