To determine the area of a parallelogram, you can use the formula:

$$ \text{Area} = \text{Base} \times \text{Height} $$

In this problem, we are given:

  • One side (base) of the parallelogram: 8 cm
  • Corresponding altitude (height): 6 cm

Using the given values, we calculate the area:

$$ \text{Area} = 8 , \text{cm} \times 6 , \text{cm} = 48 , \text{cm}^2 $$

Thus, the area of the parallelogram is 48 cm². Therefore, the correct option is:

Option D) 48 cm²
