© Brain-Cells: E.Resources Ltd. All Rights Reserved 24/11/09 4 cm 5 cm 20 square centimetres is written as 20 cm 2 We can see that the area is 20 cm 2 Recap of Area Area is measured by the number of squares of a certain size needed to cover the shape. We could, for example, find the area of this rectangle by covering it with one centimetre squares.
© Brain-Cells: E.Resources Ltd. All Rights Reserved 24/11/09 4 cm 5 cm Recap of Area Area = Base x Height The area can be found by multiplying the base by the height A = 5 x 4 A = 20 cm We can see that this is the correct answer

© Brain-Cells: E.Resources Ltd. All Rights Reserved 24/11/09 Area of a Parallelogram Area = Base x Height A = 6 x 4 6 cm 4 cm A = 24 cm 2 So to find the area, we multiply the base by the height
© Brain-Cells: E.Resources Ltd. All Rights Reserved 24/11/09 We can now use the formula to calculate the area of any parallelogram. But we do need to take care that we use the vertical height not the length of the slope. 7.5 cm 5.3 cm 6.4 cm Area = Base x Height A = 7.5 x 5.3 A = cm 2 Calculate the area of this parallelogram
