Muhammad is correct. To get the perimeter, we need all 4 sides, or at least the angles of the parallelogram. As for the area: You are correct in square inches (6*14 = 84 square inches), but you did not convert it to square feet correctly. 84 square inches = 84/144 square feet J.T. Jun 24 | James F. Comment Comments How did you get 84/144? Jun 24 | Mary from Erie, PA Since there are 12 inches in 1 foot, there are 12^2 = 144 inches^2 in 1 foot^2. Jun 24 | James F. thank you Jun 24 | Mary from Erie, PA Comment
The perimeter cannot be determined since the measure of every side of the parallelogram isn't given. Jun 24 | Muhammad C. Comment
