The formula for the Perimeter of a parallelogram,
Perimeter = 2(a + b)
(where a and b are the sides)
Find the perimeter of each parallelogram.
Problem 1 :
Solution :
Given, side (a) = 7 in and side (b) = 5 in
Perimeter of a parallelogram P = 2 (a + b)
P = 2 (7 + 5)
P = 2 (12)
P = 24 in
So, the perimeter of a parallelogram is 24 in.
Problem 2 :
Solution :
Given, side (a) = 8 yd and side (b) = 9 yd
Perimeter of a parallelogram P = 2 (a + b)
P = 2 (8 + 9)
P = 2 (17)
P = 34 yd
So, the perimeter of a parallelogram is 34 yd.
Problem 3 :
Solution :
Given, side (a) = 10 ft and side (b) = 11 ft
Perimeter of a parallelogram P = 2 (a + b)
P = 2 (10 + 11)
P = 2 (21)
P = 42 ft
So, the perimeter of a parallelogram is 42 ft.
Problem 4 :
Solution :
Given, side (a) = 12 yd and side (b) = 14 yd
Perimeter of a parallelogram P = 2 (a + b)
P = 2 (12 + 14)
P = 2 (26)
P = 52 yd
So, the perimeter of a parallelogram is 52 yd.
Problem 5 :
Solution :
Given, side (a) = 2 ft and side (b) = 4 ft
Perimeter of a parallelogram P = 2 (a + b)
P = 2(2 + 4)
P = 2 (6)
P = 12 ft
So, the perimeter of a parallelogram is 12 ft.
Problem 6 :
Solution:
Given, side (a) = 18 in and side (b) = 6 in
Perimeter of a parallelogram P = 2 (a + b)
P = 2 (18 + 6)
P = 2 (24)
P = 48 in
So, the perimeter of a parallelogram is 48 in.
Problem 7 :
The adjacent sides of a parallelogram measure 13 feet and 1 foot. Determine the perimeter of the parallelogram.
Solution:
Let adjacent side (a) = 13 ft and side (b) = 1 ft
Perimeter of a parallelogram P = 2 (a + b)
P = 2 (13 + 1)
P = 2 (14)
P = 28 ft
So, the perimeter of a parallelogram is 28 ft.
Problem 8 :
What is the perimeter of the parallelogram whose adjacent sides measure 15 yards and 17 yards?
Solution :
Let adjacent side (a) = 15 yd and side (b) = 17 yd
Perimeter of a parallelogram P = 2 (a + b)
P = 2 (15 + 17)
P = 2 (32)
P = 64 yd
So, the perimeter of a parallelogram is 64 yd.
