Parallelogram. $Area=288~mm^2$ $Perimeter=78$ mm
The figure is a parallelogram. We know that the area of a parallelogram is given by: $Area=base*height$ $A=bh$ So we have: $A=24*12$ $A=288~mm^2$ To find the perimeter, we simply add up the side lengths: $Perimeter=24+15+24+15$ $Perimeter=48+30$ $Perimeter=78$ mm
