# The perimeter of a parallelogram is 60 cm and the ratio of its adjacent sides is 3:2 .If the altitude corresponding is 5 cm. Find the area of the parallelogram and the alyitude corresponding to the smaller side

Given

Ratio of side =3:2

Perimeter =60cm

Altitude =5cm

So let take one side as 3x and other is 2x

Then perimeter of parallelogram

=3x+2x+3x+2x

=10x

According to question perimeter =60cm

Then

10x=60cm

X=60/10=6cm

Then one side is =6 x 3=18

And other is =2x6=12

So base=18cm

Area of parallelogram =bxh

=18x5=90cmÂ²

Altitude corresponding to smaller side

90=12xh

H=7.5cm
