# 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! Relevance

P = (26 + 15) + 41 + 15 + 15 = 112 m answer//

• 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

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

Exactly, Wile E..... they add up to 15.

• 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.

• 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
