About This Lesson

In this lesson, we will:
**study tips** and **math video**
below will explain more.

- See an example on finding the perimeter of a parallelogram.
- See another example on finding the side length of a parallelogram.

Tip #1

A parallelogram has two pairs of parallel sides and its opposite sides are equal
in length. These properties are shown on the right.

Now, if the parallelogram has sides of length**a** and **b**,
the perimeter
of the parallelogram, **P**, will be:

**P = 2(****a**+**b**)

This formula is similar to the formula for the perimeter of a rectangle. Rather than repeating the same explanation, the math video below will show some examples on the perimeter of a parallelogram without using the formula.

Now, if the parallelogram has sides of length

This formula is similar to the formula for the perimeter of a rectangle. Rather than repeating the same explanation, the math video below will show some examples on the perimeter of a parallelogram without using the formula.
