Question

# A parallelogram has sides 12 cm and 9 cm. If the distance between its shorter sides is 8 cm, find the distance between its longer side.

A
3 cm
B
6 cm
C
9 cm
D
12 cm

Solution

## The correct option is D $$6 \ cm$$Adjacent sides of parallelogram $$= 12\ cm$$ and $$9\ cm$$Distance between shorter sides $$= 8\ cm$$Area of parallelogram = $$b \times h =9 \times 8 =72 \ cm^2$$Again, area of parallelogram = $$b \times h$$$$72 =12 \times h$$$$h= 6 \ cm$$Therefore, the distance between its longer side $$= 6\ cm.$$Mathematics
