# The perimeter of a parallelogram is 22 cm. If the longer side measures 6.5 cm. What is the measure of the shorter side?

Answer :

**To Find:** Measure of the shorter side of the parallelogram

**Given:** Perimeter of parallelogram = 22 cm

Measure of longer side = 6.5 cm

**Concept Used:**

Opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal

Perimeter = Sum of all sides

**Explanation:**

Let the shorter side of parallelogram be ‘x’ cm.

Perimeter of parallelogram = 2(x + 6.5) cm

22 cm = 2(x + 6.5) cm

x = (11 – 6.5) cm

x = 4.5 cm

**Hence, the length of the shorter side is 4.5 cm.**
