let b be the length of the base |dw:1440553299702:dw|

area of parallelogram = base*height so A = b*h 24 = b*8 ... plug in A = 24 and h = 8. now solve for b

So whats the perimeter
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what is b equal to?

Umm.... crud, I'm not sure
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait, do I do 24*b8 to find b?
jim_thompson5910

8 times something = 24 what is that something?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't know... how do I find the something?

I'm sorry, I'm just confused :(
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
try different numbers 8 times 1 = ?? 8 times 2 = ?? 8 times 3 = ?? etc etc

OoOO 8*3=24
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yes, so the base is 3 |dw:1440553755801:dw|

with ANY parallelogram, the opposite sides are congruent (ie equal) |dw:1440553778132:dw|
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
to find the perimeter, add up all of the sides
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
the "8" is NOT one of the sides. So you don't add that to get the perimeter

I added all of the sides up, and I got 30, is 30 correct?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
30 is the perimeter, good
