Program to find the Area of a Parallelogram in C++

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

In this problem, we are given two values that denote the base and height of a parallelogram. Our task is to create a Program to find the Area of a Parallelogram in C++.

Parallelogram is a four side closed figure that has opposite sides equal and parallel to each other.

Let’s take an example to understand the problem,

Input

B = 20, H = 15

Output

300

Explanation

Area of parallelogram = B * H = 20 * 15 = 300

Solution Approach

To solve the problem, we will use the geometrical formula for area of parallelogram,

Area = base * height.

Program to illustrate the working of our solution,

Example

 Live Demo

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
float calcParallelogramArea(float B, float H){
   return (B * H);
}
int main() {
   float B = 20, H = 15;
   cout<<"The area of parallelogram with base "<<B<<" and height "<<H<<" is
   "<<calcParallelogramArea(B, H);
   return 0;
}

Output

The area of parallelogram with base 20 and height 15 is 300
