We know that

Area of parallelogram  $= base \times height$

Here,

Base of parallelogram = 12 cm

and

Height of parallelogram = 7.6 cm

$\Rightarrow 12 \times 7.6 = 91.2 \ cm^2$

Now,

Area is also given by $QN \times PS$

$\Rightarrow 91.2 = QN \times 8$

$\Rightarrow QN = \frac{91.2}{8} = 11.4 \ cm$

Therefore, value of QN is  $11.4 \ cm$
