How do you work out area in cm2 from perimeter?

If the sides are in cm, then you would multiply the length of the shape by the width, which equals area. And area is in the unit of the sides but squared. So in this example it would be cm2. ========================================= The answer to the question is: You can't. The perimeter doesn't tell you what the area is. You can have two different drawings with the same perimeter and different areas, or with the same area and different perimeters. Even if they're both triangles, or both rectangles, etc. You can't take perimeter and 'work out' area from it.

What is the area of a rectangle that is a perimeter of 30?

It can be 56.25 or anything less, but not more. You can't tell the area from the perimeter, and you can't tell the perimeter from the area. -- if each side is 7.5, the perimeter is 30, and the area is 56.25 -- if it's (5 by 10), the perimeter is still 30, and the area is 50 -- if it's (4 by 11), the perimeter is still 30, and the area is 44 -- if it's (3 by 12), the perimeter is still 30, and the area is 36 -- if it's (2 by 13), the perimeter is still 30, and the area is 26 -- if it's (1 by 14), the perimeter is still 30, and the area is 14
