I'm not really sure but If I use the formula from this site which is

AL=12n(a+b)Land by establishing the relationship between the slant height and the altitude that would form a right triangle we can then find that the base of the triangle that is formed is 10... then the lower base then would be x + 20 while the upper base would be x then the sum of the perimeters of the base would be 3(2x + 20) substituting all of the given in the formula we would be able to find that the upper base x = 3.859 and the lower base x + 20= 23.859.
