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!

P = (26 + 15) + 41 + 15 + 15 = 112 m answer//
Answer is [C] 112 m

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.

The perimeter of the given figure:
41*2 + ?

None above because the length of the left hand side is not given.
- DavidLv 71 month ago
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
