PERIMETER=48 CM

RATIO OF ADJACENT SIDES ARE=3:5=3X:5X

SUM OF 2 TIMES OF ADJACENT SIDES EQUAL TO PERIMETER.

THE PERIMETER= 6X+10X=48

16X=48

X=3

THEREFORE, THE SIDES ARE 9CM , 15CM , 9CM , 15CM

So we know parallelogram has equal sides so let the sides be

3x and 5x

so perimeter = 48

⇒2(3x + 5x)= 48

⇒8x = 24

⇒x = 3

so the sides are 9 cm,15 cm,9 cm,15 cm

3x and 5x

so perimeter = 48

⇒2(3x + 5x)= 48

⇒8x = 24

⇒x = 3

so the sides are 9 cm,15 cm,9 cm,15 cm
