A parallelogram is a quadrilateral where the opposite sides are parallel to each other.

The length of the sides of a parallelogram does not uniquely define it. It is possible to create an infinite number of different parallelograms with sides of length 6 cm and 12 cm. The interior angle should be known to determine the area of a parallelogram.

One instance of such a parallelogram is a rectangle where the interior angle is 90 degrees. In this case the area of the parallelogram is 72 cm^2.

**The information given is insufficient to determine the area of the parallelogram.**
