The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

If sides of rectangle A to rectangle B has ratio 4 to 5. What would the perimeter of rectangle A if the rectangle B has a perimeter of 100 What about area of Rectangle A if the area of rectangle B is?

The perimeter of rectangle A would then be 80 because 80 to 100 is 4 to 5 simplified and the area of triangle A would depend on the sides and area of rectangle B which have not been given.


Formula of a rectangle?

There is no formula for a rectangle. There are formula for calculating its area, perimeter or length of diagonals from its sides, or it is possible to calculate the length of one pair of sides given the other sides and the area or perimeter, or the two lots of sides given area and perimeter and so on.


How do you maximize the area given the perimeter?

In the case of a rectangle, you would maximize the area given the perimeter by making the dimensions equal. In other words, you would make the rectangle into a square. However, to truly maximize the area, you would make the perimeter a perfect circle.


What is the maximum area for a rectangle whose perimeter is 136?

The maximum area for a rectangle of fixed perimeter is that of the square that can be formed with the given perimeter. 136/4 = 34, so that the side of such a square will be 34 and its area 342 = 1156.


How do you find a perimeter of a rectangle with one number given?

If you are given the area you will have to think what do you times with the number you have to get it.


If two shapes have the same perimeter will they have the same area?

Not at all. For example:A square of 2 x 2 will have a perimeter of 8, and an area of 4. A rectangle of 3 x 1 will also have a perimeter of 8, and an area of 3.A "rectangle" of 4 x 0 will also have a perimeter of 8, but the area has shrunk down to zero. The circle has the largest area for a given perimeter/circumference.
