Q:
# The ratio of two sides of a parallelogram is 3:4 and the perimeter is 28 in. Find the lengths of the sides of the parallelogram.

Accepted Solution

A:

We have w/h = 3/4 and 2w + 2h = 28 in;

Then, w = 3h/4;

2x(3h/4) + 2h = 28;

3h/2 + 2h = 28;

3h + 4h = 56;

7h = 56;

h = 8 in;

w = 24/4;

w = 6 in.

Then, w = 3h/4;

2x(3h/4) + 2h = 28;

3h/2 + 2h = 28;

3h + 4h = 56;

7h = 56;

h = 8 in;

w = 24/4;

w = 6 in.
