    Answer: the length of each remaining side is 14 centimeters

    Step-by-step explanation:

    In an isosceles trapezoid, the opposite sides of are of the same length. Let x represent the length of each of the opposite sides. This means that the length of the 2 opposite sides is 2x.

    Its shorter base measures 10 centimeters and its longer base measures 15 centimeters. If the perimeter of the isosceles trapezoid is 53 centimeters, it means that

    2x + 10 + 15 = 53

    2x + 25 = 53

    2x = 53 – 25 = 28

    x = 28/2 = 14
