The perimeter of parallelogram CDEF is 54 centimeters. Find the length of segment FC if segment DE is 5 centimeters longer than segment EF. (Hint: Sketch and label a diagram first.)

a)14
b)44
c)16
d)11

  • geometry -

    let the width be x
    then the length is x+5

    solve....

    2x + 2(x+5) = 54

  • geometry -

    so? the answer is?

  • geometry -

    d)11
