C Program to Find Area of Parallelogram

In this post, we will learn how to find the area of a parallelogram using C Programming language.

A parallelogram is defined as a quadrilateral in which both pairs of opposite sides are parallel and equal. 

The area of a parallelogram is the space enclosed between the four sides of a parallelogram. 

  • Area of Parallelogram = Base x Height

We will be using the above formula in our program to compute the area of parallelogram.

So, without further ado, let’s begin this tutorial.

C Program to Find Area of Parallelogram

// C Program to Find Area of Parallelogram
#include <stdio.h>
int main(){
    int height, base;
    long area;
    
    // Asking for input
    printf("Enter the height of parallelogram: ");
    scanf("%d", &height);
    printf("Enter the base of parallelogram: ");
    scanf("%d", &base);
    
    // Calculating area
    area = height * base;
    
    // Displaying area
    printf("Area of Parallelogram: %ld", area);
    return 0;
}

Output

Enter the height of parallelogram: 4
Enter the base of parallelogram: 7
Area of Parallelogram: 28

How Does This Program Work ?

    int height, base;
    long area;

In this program, we have declared two int data type variables and one long data type variable.

    // Asking for input
    printf("Enter the height of parallelogram: ");
    scanf("%d", &height);
    printf("Enter the base of parallelogram: ");
    scanf("%d", &base);

Then, the user is asked to enter the height and base of the parallelogram.

    // Calculating area
    area = height * base;

We calculate the area of parallelogram using the formula:

Area = Base x Height

    // Displaying area
    printf("Area of Parallelogram: %ld", area);

Finally, the result is displayed to the screen using printf() function.

Conclusion

I hope after going through this post, you understand how to find the area of parallelogram using C Programming language.
