| **The bisector of angles A and D of parallelogram ABCD meets at point M lying on side BC. Find the sides of the parallelogram if its P = 36 cm.**

Let’s designate the intersection point as M and consider the triangle CDM, the angle CDM will be equal to 1/2 of the angle CDA, as DM is the bisector. The sum of the angles BAD and CDA is 180 (since ABCD is a parallelogram), and the angle BAD is equal to BCD, then:

CMD = 180- (MCD + CDM) = 180-180 + CDA-1 / 2CDA = 1 / 2CDA = CDM

From the obtained equality it follows that the triangle MCD is isosceles, then:

CD = CM

Similarly, we need to consider the triangle ABM, then we get BC = 1 / 2CD.

Take the side ABC, we get the equation:

x + 2x + x + 2x = 36

6x = 36

x = 6

2nd side: 6 * 2 = 12
