Holt CA Course 1 9-1 Perimeter & Area of Parallelograms MG2.1 Use formulas routinely for finding the perimeter and area of basic two- dimensional figures and the surface area and volume of basic three-dimensional figures, including rectangles, parallelograms, trapezoids, squares, triangles, circles, prisms, and cylinders. Also covered: MG2.2, MG2.4, and MG3.2 California Standards

Holt CA Course 1 9-1 Perimeter & Area of Parallelograms Perimeter is the distance around a polygon. To find the perimeter of any polygon, you add the lengths of all its sides. Since opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal in length, you can find a formula for the perimeter of a parallelogram. P = w + l + w + l = w + w + l + l = 2w + 2 l w l

Holt CA Course 1 9-1 Perimeter & Area of Parallelograms The area of a plane figure is the number of unit squares needed to cover the figure. The base of a parallelogram is the length of one side. The height is the perpendicular distance from the base to the opposite side. Height Side Base

Holt CA Course 1 9-1 Perimeter & Area of Parallelograms While perimeter is expressed in linear units, such as inches (in.) or meters (m), area is expressed in square units, such as square feet (ft 2 ). You can cut a parallelogram and shift the cut piece to form a rectangle whose base and height are the same as those of the original parallelogram. The same number of unit squares are needed to cover the two figures. So a parallelogram and a rectangle that have the same base and height have the same area.

Holt CA Course 1 9-1 Perimeter & Area of Parallelograms

Holt CA Course 1 9-1 Perimeter & Area of Parallelograms Since the base and height of a rectangle are the same as its length and width, the formula for the area of a rectangle can also be written as A = lw. Helpful Hint

Holt CA Course 1 9-1 Perimeter & Area of Parallelograms A. (–1, –2), (2, –2), (2, 3), (–1, 3) A = 15 units 2 A = 3 5 A = bh Additional Example 2: Using a Graph to Find Area Graph and find the area of the figure with the given vertices. Area of a rectangle. Substitute 3 for b and 5 for h.

Holt CA Course 1 9-1 Perimeter & Area of Parallelograms The height of a parallelogram is not the length of its slanted side. The height of a figure is always perpendicular to the base. Caution!
