A =C

B = D.

A = 96

C= 96

A + C= 96*2 = 192.

B + D + 192 = 360

B + B = 168

2B = 168

B = 84.

$$a=48+48=96$$
$$2a=96*2=192$$
as $$2a+2b=360$$
$$2b=360-2a$$
$$2b=360-192$$
$$2b=168$$
$$b=84$$

ABCD is parallelogram i.e. Sum of Adjacent two angle = 180º

Angle A = 48+48 = 96

i.e. Angle bº = 180º-96º = 84º

We see that angle DAB = 48 + 48 = 96 degrees. Since ABCD is a parallelogram and consecutive angles of a parallelogram are supplementary, angle ABC = 180 - 96 = 84 degrees. So b = 84.
