To find the height of a parallelogram, use the formula "base times height equals area." Divide both sides of the equation by the base to find the height. Height is equal to the area divided by base.
Continue ReadingLook to the equation to identify the known and unknown variables. In this case, the height is the unknown variable.
In this example, the area of the parallelogram is 80 and the base is 10. The equation is now: height equals 80 divided by 10.
Simplify 80 divided by 10 to find the height. The height in this example is equal to 8.
