Rectangle/Parallelogram Example :
Case 1:

Find the area and perimeter of a rectangle for the breadth 4 and the height 3.

Step 1:

Find the area. Area = b×h = 4×3 = 12.

Step 2:

Find the perimeter. Perimeter = 2(b) + 2(h) = 2(4) + 2(3) = 8 + 6 = 14. The above example will clearly illustrates how to calculate the Area and Perimeter of a Rectangle manually.
