The area of a square with perimeter 12 |
The area of a parallelogram with perimeter 16 |
A) Quantity A is greater.
B) Quantity B is greater.
C) The two quantities are equal.
D) The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
QTY B : find area of parallelogram, only perimeter is given.
But we donot have any more information about the height and we are left with 2 unknown. The answer will result to D.
Let solve to find out
Given \(2 * (a + b) = 16\) , a and b are the two sides of parallelogram
or a + b = 8
Now the area of parallelogram = base * height , but we donot have enough info to solve it
Option D
