How to find the perimeter of this figure?

For some reason this seemingly easy problem confuses me. The only possible answer I could think of is C, but I'm not sure if I'm correct, please help!

    One trick would be to flip the two segments in the upper left and you'd have a rectangle that was 41 m wide and 15 m high, with no change in perimeter.

    P = 2(41 + 15)

    P = 2(56)

    P = 112 m

    Answer:(C) 112 m

    The perimeter of this figure is not solvable as the diagram is faulty.

      Look again...the two vertical sides add up to 15 and the horizontal one is 41.

    If it says parallel-o-gram

    =2(41+15)=112

    C. 112m

    None above because the length of the left hand side is not given.

    It is C = 112 m because the left hand dimensions must add up to 15 m and the base dimension is 41 m

    You know know for certain 26 + 15 + 15 + 41. The other two unknown sides add up to 15 so the perimeter is 112.

    C is the answer.

    If you look at the diagram, you can see that the top left hand corner could be "flipped" and you would have a simple rectangle with exactly the same perimeter.

    The perimeter would be:

    15 + 15 + (26 + 15) + (26 + 15)

    = 30 + 41 + 41

    = 112

    Answer C
