Answer:

Other two sides are #4.62# unit long.

Explanation:

The area of the parallelogram is #A_p=s_1*s_2*sin theta#

Where #s_1=7,s_2=?,theta=(2 pi)/3=120^0 # are the adjacent

sides and corner angle respectively.

#A_p=28 :. 28=7*s_2*sin 120 or s_2= 28/(7*sin 120)# or

#s_2 ~~4.62(2 dp)# unit.

Other two sides are #4.62# unit long. [Ans]
