Let's look at the geometric characteristics of a parallelogram. But first, please review the definition of Area Of Two-Dimensional Shapes, Angle, and Right Angle.

- A parallelogram is very similar to a rectangle;
a rectangle has vertical sides, a Parallelogram does not. A Parallelogram four sides; two side have the same length - let's call
these two Length
**(L)**. - The other two sides have the same length but their length
are different from the first lengths - let's call these two sides Width
**(W)**. - There is also a third measurement - height. This measure is a imaginary right-angle line.
- Special note, both the height and base lengths of a parallelogram must be greater than zero.

**Area Of Parallelogram Formula**

Formula = L × W
