MEAP Preparation - Grade 6 Mathematics3.29 Finding the Area/Perimeter of Parallelogram

 If a parallelogram has a base of b units, and a height of h units, then: The area A is product of its base and the corresponding height: Area = base x height The perimeter of parallelogram is the sum of the lengths all its sides: P = b + h + b + h . A = bh P = 2b + 2h = 2(b + h) Example: Find the area and perimeter of parallelogram whose base is 9 inches and height is 12 inches. Area of parallelogram = b x h =9 x 12 = 108 square inches Perimeter of parallelogram = 2(b + h) = 2(9 + 12) = 2(21) =42 inches Answer: Area is 108 square inches. Perimeter is 42 inches. Directions: Find the area of the parallelogram. Also draw a parallelogram and write at least 5 examples of your own.
