Q. 84.5( 119 Votes )

The following figures GUNS and RUNS are parallelograms

Find x and y (Lengths are in cm)

(i)

(ii)

Answer :

(i) We know that the lengths of opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal to each other

GU = SN


3y − 1 = 26


3y = 27


y = 9


SG = NU


3x = 18


x = 6


Therefore, the measures of x and y are 6 cm and 9 cm respectively


(ii) We know that the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other


y + 7 = 20


y = 13


x + y = 16


x + 13 = 16


x = 3


Hence, the measures of x and y are 3 cm and 13 cm respectively
