The measures of two adjacent sides of a parallelogram are in the ratio 17:7. if the second side measures 3.5 cm, find the perimeter of the parallelogram.

• maths -

if two sides must be parallel then the fourth side is also 3.5 cm

• maths -

well, you need the longer side:

longerside=17/7 * 3.5

perimeter= 2*longerside+2*3.5 cm
