Let’s learn area of parallelogram in java.

## Area of parallelogram in java

A parallelogram is four sided geometrical shape with opposite sides parallel and opposite angles equal. To calculate area of parallelogram formula is:

area = base x height

Let’s see program to find area of parallelogram in java.

import java.util.Scanner; public class AreaOfParallelogram { public static void main(String[] args) { Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in); System.out.println("Please enter base of parallelogram: "); double base = sc.nextDouble(); System.out.println("Please enter height of parallelogram: "); double height = sc.nextDouble(); double area = base * height; System.out.println("Area of parallelogram is: " + area); sc.close(); } }

**Output:**

Please enter base of parallelogram:

5

Please enter height of parallelogram:

14

Area of parallelogram is: 70.0
