# Python Math: Calculate the area of a parallelogram

## Python Math: Exercise-4 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate the area of a parallelogram.

Note: A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel (and therefore opposite angles equal). A quadrilateral with equal sides is called a rhombus, and a parallelogram whose angles are all right angles is called a rectangle.

**Sample Solution**:

**Python Code:**

```
base = float(input('Length of base: '))
height = float(input('Measurement of height: '))
area = base * height
print("Area is: ", area)
```

Sample Output:

Length of base: 5 Measurement of height: 6 Area is: 30.0
