A playground in the town is in the form of a kite. The perimeter is 106 m. If one of its sides is 23 m, what are the lengths of other three sides?
Let the length of other non-consecutive side be x cm.
Then, we have, perimeter of playground = 23 + 23+ x + x
=> 106 = 2 (23+ x)
=>46 + 2x = 106 2x = 106 – 46
=>2x = 60
=>x = 30 m
Hence, the lengths of other three sides are 23m, 30m and 30m. As a kite has two pairs of equal consecutive sides.
