Calculating the Area of ​​Parallelogram

Parallelogram formula. To calculate the area of a parallelogram we have to know in advance the length of the base and height. Nothing difficult than waking up flat on this one. The shape is similar to a rectangle, it's just a line on the side not straight (tilted at an angle). But two lines facing each other either as the base line and the line as high, all have the same length and parallel.

It forms the image there is a difference between a rectangular parallelogram. But in the formula for the area, both have the same formula is length x width (rectangle), base x height (parallelogram). How can it be the formula for the area of the same, he said because of the parallelogram, the high line of sight angle and have the same length. So this means the vast terlingkup same as in the rectangle.

The formula used to calculate the area of a parallelogram:

L = a x t

L = area of ​​parallelogram
a = length of base parallelogram
t = length of a parallelogram high

The formula used to calculate the perimeter of a parallelogram:

K = 2 x (a + t)


K = 2 + 2 high pedestal

K = length of the circumference of a parallelogram

I think it got here my simple explanation megenai flat parallelogram-up behavior. I think the math is not difficult, because the answer can be found for sure so do not give rise to debate. Not the same as any other science that requires opinions, so it is not clear what is right and wrong.


Please double post in this blog is up to you
