Could really use some help understanding and solving this problem. In the figure below, a = 9, b = 11, and c = 14 . Use this information to solve the parallelogram for c. The diagonals of the parallelogram are represented by c and d. Round answer to two decimal places.

    probably a typo somewhere. you have c = 14 and then say solve for c

    either way, if you have one of the diagonals you can use law of cosines to solve for an angle, find the other angles, then use it again for the missing diagonal
