Take the formula and fill in what you know. Then do some simple algebra and find out the solution!
perimeter = 2(w+h)
where: w is the base length of the parallelogram h is the side length
Lets say the perimeter for this parallelogram is 10 and the height is 3. We will take the formula is fill those numbers is
Formula: perimeter = 2(w+h)
Filling in with numbers: 10=2(w+3)
Use your knowledge of algebra to find the missing variable!
