Views: 16

In this tutorial i will show you how to calculate parallelogram area. This program gets parallelogram base and height from user and calculates area and prints it using following formula Area = base X height

#include <iostream>
#include <math.h>

int main() {
	float parallelogramBase;
	float parallelogramHeight;

	std::cout << "Please enter base of parallelogram:";
	std::cin >> parallelogramBase;

	std::cout << "Please enter height of parallelogram:";
	std::cin >> parallelogramHeight;

	float areaOfParallelogram = parallelogramBase * parallelogramHeight;

	std::cout << "Area of parallelogram is: " << areaOfParallelogram;
}

Output:

Please enter base of parallelogram: 22
Please enter height of parallelogram: 18
Area of parallelogram is: 396
