# Program to find the Area of a Parallelogram

Given the sides of a Parallelogram, task is calculate the area of a Parallelogram. Examples:

```Input: base = 30, height = 40
Output: 1200.000000
As Area of parallelogram = base * height,
Therefore, Area = 30 * 40 = 1200.00
```

Approach:

Area of parallelogram = base * height

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `// function to calculate the area ` `float` `CalArea(``float` `base, ``float` `height) ` `{ ` `    ``return` `(base * height); ` `} ` `// driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``float` `base, height, Area; ` `    ``base = 30; ` `    ``height = 40; ` ` `  `    ``// function calling ` `    ``Area = CalArea(base, height); ` `    ``// displaying the area ` `    ``cout << ``"Area of Parallelogram is :"` `<< Area; ` `    ``return` `0; ` `} `

## C

 `#include ` ` `  `// function to calculate the area ` `float` `CalArea(``float` `base, ``float` `height) ` `{ ` `    ``return` `(base * height); ` `} ` ` `  `// driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``float` `base, height, Area; ` `    ``base = 30; ` `    ``height = 40; ` ` `  `    ``// function calling ` `    ``Area = CalArea(base, height); ` ` `  `    ``// displaying the area ` `    ``printf``(``"Area of Parallelogram is : %f\n"``, Area); ` `    ``return` `0; ` `} `

## Java

 `public` `class` `parallelogram { ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String args[]) ` `    ``{ ` `        ``int` `base = ``30``; ` `        ``int` `height = ``40``; ` ` `  `        ``// formula for calculating the area ` `        ``int` `area_parallelogram = base * height; ` ` `  `        ``// displayin g the area ` `        ``System.out.println(``"Area of the parallelogram = "` `+ area_parallelogram); ` `    ``} ` `} `

## Python

 `base ``=` `30`  `height ``=` `40`   ` `  `# formula for finding the area ` `area_parallelogram ``=` `base ``*` `height ` ` `  `# displaying the output ` `print``(``"Area of the parallelogram = "``+``str``(area_parallelogram)) `

## C#

 `using` `System; ` `class` `parallelogram  ` `{ ` `public` `static` `void` `Main() ` `{ ` `    ``int` `b_ase = 30; ` `    ``int` `height = 40; ` ` `  `    ``// formula for calculating the area ` `    ``int` `area_parallelogram = b_ase * height; ` ` `  `    ``// displayin g the area ` `    ``Console.WriteLine(``"Area of the parallelogram = "` `+  ` `                                  ``area_parallelogram); ` `} ` `} ` ` `  `// This code is contributed by vt_m `

## PHP

 `  `

Output:

```Area of Parallelogram is : 1200.000000
```
