Weegy: Area of a Parallelogram
In our daily life, we have seen many plane ?gures other than square, rectangleand triangle. [ Do you know the other plane ?gures?Parallelogram is one of the other plane ?gures.In this section we will discuss about the parallelogram and further we are goingto discuss the following:How to ?nd the area of a land which is a parallelogram in shape ?Can a parallelogram be converted into rectangle of equal area ?Can a parallelogram be converted into two triangles of equal area ?
De?nition of Parallelogram
Take four broom sticks. Using cycle valve tube rubber, join them and form arectangle ( see Fig. 4.26 (i))
Fig. 4.26
Keeping the base AB ?xed and slightly push the corner D to its right, you willget the shape as shown in Fig. 4.26 (ii). Now answer the following:Do the shape has parallel sides ? Which are the sides parallel to each other?Here the sides AB and DC are parallel and AD andBC are parallel. We use the symbol ‘||’ which denotes “is parallel to” i.e., AB || DC and AD || BC. ( Read it as ABis parallel to DC and AD is parallel to BC ).So,
in a quadrilateral, if both the pair of oppositesides are parallel then it is called a parallelogram.
