# Find the area of the following parallelograms:

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

(e)

Answer :

(a) It is given in the question that,

Height of parallelogram = 4 cm

Base of parallelogram = 7 cm

We know that,

Area of parallelogram = Base × Height

= 7 × 4

= 28 cm^{2}

∴ Area of parallelogram is 28 cm^{2}

(b) It is given in the question that,

Height of parallelogram = 3 cm

Base of parallelogram = 5 cm

We know that,

Area of parallelogram = Base × Height

= 5 × 3

= 15 cm^{2}

∴ Area of parallelogram is 15 cm^{2}

(c) It is given in the question that,

Height of parallelogram = 3.5 cm

Base of parallelogram = 2.5 cm

We know that,

Area of parallelogram = Base × Height

= 2.5 × 3.5

= 8.75 cm^{2}

∴ Area of parallelogram is 8.75 cm^{2}

(d) It is given in the question that,

Height of parallelogram = 4.8 cm

Base of parallelogram = 5 cm

We know that,

Area of parallelogram = Base × Height

= 4.8 × 5

= 24 cm^{2}

∴ Area of parallelogram is 24 cm^{2}

(e) It is given in the question that,

Height of parallelogram = 4.4 cm

Base of parallelogram = 2 cm

We know that,

Area of parallelogram = Base × Height

= 2 × 4.4

= 8.8 cm^{2}

∴ Area of parallelogram is 8.8 cm^{2}
