# Rust program to calculate the area of Parallelogram

Given base and height or altitude of the Parallelogram, we have to calculate the area of Parallelogram using Rust program.
Submitted by Nidhi, on September 29, 2021

Problem Solution:

Here, we will read the base, altitude of the Parallelogram from the user. Then we will calculate the area of Parallelogram and print the result.

Area of Parallelogram formula = b x h

Where b is the base and h is the height or altitude of the Parallelogram.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to calculate the area of the Parallelogram is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

```// Rust program to calculate the
// area of Parallelogram

use std::io;

fn main()
{
let mut base:f32    = 0.0;
let mut altitude:f32= 0.0;
let mut area:f32    = 0.0;

let mut input1 = String::new();
let mut input2 = String::new();

println!("Enter base: ");
base = input1.trim().parse().expect("Not a valid number");

println!("Enter altitude: ");
altitude = input2.trim().parse().expect("Not a valid number");

area = base * altitude;

println!("Area of Parallelogram is: {}", area);
}
```

Output:

```Enter base:
12.34
Enter altitude:
34.56
Area of Parallelogram is: 426.47043
```

Explanation:

Here, we read the value of base, altitude from the user. Then we calculated the area of Parallelogram and printed the result.
