# Calculate the perimeter of a parallelogram with sides 6 3/4 inches and 5 1/2 inches?

Parallelograms have opposite and congruent sides.

To find the perimeter, add these all together.

First convert the mixed fractions into improper fractions.

Now, when we add these, we should have a common denominator between

This one is an exercise in fractions which can be done mentally, rather than by the pure application of a method. The fact that the perimeter is asked for is citing the reason to add fractions.

Work with the whole numbers first, giving: 6+5+6+5 = 22

Try to work questions like this in your head first, then you can check on paper, or as a last resort, with a calculator.

To calculate the perimeter of a parallelogram, you need to add the lengths of all its sides. Given that the parallelogram has sides measuring 6 3/4 inches and 5 1/2 inches, you would add these two lengths together and then multiply the sum by 2 since opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal in length.

Perimeter = 2 * (6 3/4 inches + 5 1/2 inches)

First, convert the mixed fractions to improper fractions:
6 3/4 inches = (4*6 + 3)/4 = 27/4 inches
5 1/2 inches = (2*5 + 1)/2 = 11/2 inches

Now, add the lengths: Perimeter = 2 * (27/4 inches + 11/2 inches)

Perimeter = 2 * (27/4 + 11/2) inches

Now, find a common denominator for the fractions: Perimeter = 2 * ((27/4) * (2/2) + (11/2) * (2/2))

Perimeter = 2 * ((54/8) + (22/8)) inches

Perimeter = 2 * (76/8) inches

Perimeter = 152/8 inches

Now, simplify the fraction: Perimeter = 19 inches

Therefore, the perimeter of the parallelogram is 19 inches.
