The parallelogram has side lengths in the ratio of 3:4 and a perimeter of 2.8 meters. Determine the lengths of the sides.

Correct answer:

a =  0.6 m
b =  0.8 m

Step-by-step explanation:

p=2.8 m a:b = 3:4 = 3/4  4a=3b p=2(a+b) 4a=3b 2.8=2(a+b)  4 a=3 b 2.8=2 (a+b)  4a3b=0 2a+2b=2.8  Row242 Row1Row2 4a3b=0 3.5b=2.8  b=3.52.8=0.8 a=40+3b=40+3 0.8=0.6=0.6 m  a=53=0.6 b=54=0.8
