Answer :

Given, The length of adjacent sides of a parallelogram are 5 cm. and 3 cm and the distance between the longer side is 2 cm.

Area of the parallelogram = base × height


Area = 5 × 2


= 10 cm2


Also, area = base(shorter side) × distance between shorter sides (height)


10 = 3 × smaller side


Smaller side =


Smaller side = 3.33 cm
