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


Since there are 12 inches in 1 foot, there are 12^2 = 144 inches^2 in 1 foot^2.
