# Area of Rhomboid

To calculate the **area of a rhomboid**, we need to know a length of its base side and perpendicular height. The rhomboid is 2D shape, which has two pairs of parallel sides. Only its opposite sides have the same length. The **area of a rhomboid** means a size of a cover area by the rhomboid. For example, the area of a rhomboid garden. The elementary unit of the area is one square metre, it means the second power of one metre (1 m^{2}).

## Area of Rhomboid - formula

**Area of Rhomboid** = base length × perpendicular height

A = a × h
