# Parallelogram - Metric

Calculate the area and perimeter of a parallelogram.
This calculator uses metres for measurements.

Parallelogram = a four-sided shape with the opposite sides running parallel to each other.

### Parallelogram Area and Perimeter - Metric

Base Length A m
Height m
Side Length m
Decimal Precision

#### Results:

###### Area of the Parallelogram
Square Metres
Square Feet ft²
Square Inches in²
Metres m
Feet ft
Inches in

#### Calculation

1. the base length in metres
2. height in metres
3. side length in metres
4. decimal precision, the number of digits after the decimal point

#### Results

1. the area of the parallelogram in square metres
2. area in square feet
3. the area in square inches
4. the perimeter of the parallelogram in metres
5. the perimeter in feet
6. the perimeter in inches

##### Formula
```A = ab/4
P = 𝛑R(1+(3H)/(10+√(4-3*H)))
where A is the area of the ellipse
a length of the short diameter
b length of the long diameter
P the perimeter of the ellipse
𝛑 = 3.14159265
R = (a+b)/2
S = (a-b)/2
H = R²/S²
```

##### Conversions
```one metre (m) = 3.28083989501312 feet (ft)
one metre (m) = 39.3700787401575 inches (in)
one square metre (m²) = 10.7639104167097 square feet (ft²)
one square metre (m²) = 1550.0031000062 square inches (in²)
