7 : C Program to Calculate Area and Parallelogram

Check out the complete list of c-programs : C Program List    

To calulate area of Parallelogram you need to know the height and breadth of a Parallelogram. You can ask user to enter height and breadth and calculate the area.

Variables :

1. height : (Datatype int) : to represent the height of Parallelogram.

2. breadth : (Datatype int) : to represent the breadth of Parallelogram.

3. area : (Datatype long) : to store the result of area of the Parallelogram being computed.

Functions :

printf() : is used to display something on the console/screen. Format specifier %d in printf function is used to display a int variable on screen and %ld for long. \n is used to add a newline

scanf() : is used to fetch data inputted by the user on the console/screen using keyboard. %d in scanf is indicates that inputted text is of type int and %ld for long.

Formula :

Area of Parallelogram : height x breadth

void main() {

    int height;
    int breadth;
	long area;

//	clrscr();

	printf(" Program to calculate Area of a Parallelogram :  \n\n");

	printf(" Enter the Length of a Parallelogram : ");
	scanf("%d", &height);
    printf("\n\n Enter the Breadth of a Parallelogram : ");
	scanf("%d", &breadth);

	area = height*breadth;

	printf("\n\n Area of Parallelogram with Height as %d and Breadth as %d  = %ld \n\n",height,breadth,area);

//	getch();
