Program to calculate area of a parallelogram
  • Last Updated : 05 Apr, 2021

Given integers A and B denoting the length of sides of a parallelogram and Y that is the angle between the sides and length of diagonals D1 and D2 of the parallelogram and an angle 0 at the intersection of the diagonal, the task is to find the area of the parallelogram from the information provided.

A parallelogram is a type of quadrilateral that has equal and parallel opposite sides and angle between them is not right angle.

Examples:

Input: A = 6, B = 10, 0 = 30
Output: 18.48
Explanation:
For the given sides 6 and 10 and for the angle 30 degree the area of parallelogram will be 18.48.

Input: A = 3, B = 5, Y = 45
Output: 10.61
Explanation:
For the given sides 3 and 5 and for the angle 45 degree the length of diagonal will be 10.61.



Input: D1 = 3, D2 = 5, 0 = 90
Output: 7.5
Explanation:
For the given diagonals 3 and 5 and for the angle 90 degree the area of parallelogram will be 7.5.

Approach: The area of the parallelogram can be calculated by the following three formulas:

  • From given sides A and B and the angle between the diagonals, the area of the parallelogram can be calculated by the following formula:

 Area of Parallelogram for sides and angle between diagonals = ((A2 – B2) * tan 0) / 2

  • From given sides A and B and the angle between the sides, the area of the parallelogram is can be calculated by the following formula: 
     

Area of Parallelogram for sides and angle between sides = A * B * sin Y
 

  • From the given length of diagonals D1 and D2 and the angle between them, the area of the parallelogram can be calculated by the following formula: 
     

Area of Parallelogram for diagonals and angle between diagonals = (D1 * D2 * sin 0)/2

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++

// above approach

{
  
    // Calculate area of parallelogram
    double area = (abs(tan(toRadians(theta))) / 2) *
                   abs(a * a - b * b);

                           int gamma)
{    
  // Calculate area of parallelogram

  double area = (abs(sin(toRadians(theta))) / 2) *
                 abs(d1 * d2);
 
  // Return the answer

}
