Find the mass moment of inertia of a L-shaped bar that has legs of 1.2 m long and total mass of bar is 20 kg.

2. Relevant equations

I=1/12*m*L^2

parallel axis theorem

3. The attempt at a solution

I've tried attempting this problem but I just can't figure out how to apply mass moments to the parallel axis theorem.

Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated. I need to figure this mass moment of inertia for a rotational dynamics problem I'm working on.
