Answer :

Given. ABCD is a parallelogram.

AB = CD ; BC = AD


AB = 6 cm, BD = 8 cm and AD = 5 cm


Formula used. Area of parallelogram = base × height


Steps of construction


Step 1 : Draw a line AB of 6cm


Step 2 : Make an arc of 8cm from point B and 5cm from point A



Step 3 : Intersection of Both the arcs gives point D and join AD , AB



Step 4 : Draw arc of 6cm and 5cm from point D and B respectively



Step 5 : Mark the intersection point as C then join DC and BC



Step 6 : Draw a perpendicular on AB from point C and name the intersection point as E



Area of parallelogram = base × height


= AB × CE


= 6cm × 5cm


= 30cm2


Conclusion. Hence; parallelogram ABCD is constructed and its area is 30cm2
