We know a parallelogram has equal opposite sides

so let the longer side be l =9.5 cm

and the adjacent side be b

so we have perimeter = 2(l+b) = 30 ⇒ l+b = 15 ⇒ 9.5 + b = 15 ⇒ b = 5.5 cm

so the sides are 9.5 cm , 5.5 cm , 9.5 cm , 5.5 cm__ANSWER__

so let the longer side be l =9.5 cm

and the adjacent side be b

so we have perimeter = 2(l+b) = 30 ⇒ l+b = 15 ⇒ 9.5 + b = 15 ⇒ b = 5.5 cm

so the sides are 9.5 cm , 5.5 cm , 9.5 cm , 5.5 cm

Given perimeter of parallelogram = 30 cm

Let breadth be x

Perimeter of parallelogram = 2 ( Length + Breadth )

30 = 2 ( 9.5 + x )

15 = 9.5 + x

5.5 = x

Hence the each side of the parallelogram are 5.5 cm , 9.5 cm , 5.5 cm , 9.5 cm.
