The perimeter of the parallelogram is 117 cm. The length of one side is 1.9-times longer than the length of the shorter side. What is the length of sides of a parallelogram?


a =  20.17 cm
b =  38.328 cm


2(a+b) = 117
b = 1.9 a

2a+2b = 117
1.9a-b = 0

a = 585/29 ≈ 20.172414
b = 2223/58 ≈ 38.327586
