ABCD is a parallelogram in which AB = 9.5 cm and its perimeter is 30 cm.

Question:

ABCD is a parallelogram in which AB = 9.5 cm and its perimeter is 30 cm. Find the length of each side of the parallelogram.

Solution:

ABCD is a parallelogram.
The opposite sides of a parallelogram are parallel and equal.
∴ AB = DC = 9.5 cm
Let BC = AD = x
∴​ Perimeter of ABCD = AB + BC + CD + DA = 30 cm
⇒ 9.5 + x + 9.5 + x = 30
⇒ 19 + 2x = 30
⇒ 2x = 11
⇒ x = 5.5 cm
Hence, AB = DC = 9.5 cm and BC = DA = 5.5 cm
