The area of a parallelogram is the measure of the region enclosed by its four sides. It is calculated by multiplying the base of the parallelogram by its corresponding height. A parallelogram is a 2-dimensional shape with opposite sides parallel to each other. Examples of parallelograms include rectangular shapes, rhomboids, and slanted squares. The formula for calculating the area of a parallelogram is A = b x h, where A represents the area, b represents the base of the parallelogram, and h represents its corresponding height.

The formula for determining the area of a parallelogram is defined as:

\(A\) \(=\) \(b\) \(\cdot\) \(h\)

\(A\): the area of the parallelogram

\(h\): the height of the parallelogram

\(b\): the length of the base

The SI unit of area is: \(square \text{ } meter\text{ }(m^2)\)
