Program to find the Area of a Parallelogram
• Last Updated : 14 Apr, 2021

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

 ``

## Javascript

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