The perimeter of a parallelogram is 22 cm. If the longer side measures 6.5 cm. What is the measure of the shorter side?
To Find: Measure of the shorter side of the parallelogram
Given: Perimeter of parallelogram = 22 cm
Measure of longer side = 6.5 cm
Opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal
Perimeter = Sum of all sides
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.
