    And you already know the area of a triangle. Just multiply by 2.

    its bxh for a parallelogram because its made up of 2 right triangles and a rectangle so when you multiply by b x h the half triangles are filled to be one... so its basically a big rectangle

    L x W is for a rectangle and B x H is for a parallelogram which has slanted sides unlike a rectangle.. so there is a difference..

    Draw a parallelogram and draw a line from one corner to the other to convince yourself that it is actually two triangles. Same with a rectangle.
