The figure is a parallelogram, the perimeter is $76$ cm and the area is $264$ cm$^{2}$.
1. State the name of the figure: Parallelogram, since there are four sides with both pairs of opposite sides parallel and equal in length 2. Find the perimeter of the parallelogram Let $P =$ the perimeter of the figure $P = 2(24) + 2(14)$ $P = 48 + 28$ $P = 76$ cm 3. Find the area of the parallelogram Let $A=$ the area of the figure $A = base \times height$ $A = 24 \times 11$ $A = 264$ cm$^{2}$
