25. The length of one side of a parallelogram is 3 more than twice the length of the
adjacent side. The perimeter of the parallelogram is 30 cm. Find the lengths of
the two adjacent sides of the parallelogram. 4 cm and 11 cm
26. Reasoning A classmate draws a parallelogram for which one side is twice
as long as the other. If one side is 26 units, what are all the possible
lengths of the perimeter? 78 units or 156 units
