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.
