Triangle: 1/2 x base x height

Rectangle: Base x height

It depends on how you are solving for the parallelogram

Formula for a parallelagram is base x hieght so 

A = B * H

 

Formula for a rectangle is width x length so

A = W * L

 

Hope this helps ;P

I was taught that when solving area of parrallelogram, you could use decomposition.
