p= 6(2) +14(2)

p= 12+28

p=40

A= 6 (14)

A= 84 square inches or 7 square feet

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.

How did you get 84/144?

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

thank you

The perimeter cannot be determined since the measure of every side of the parallelogram isn't given.
