The perimeter is the outside of a shape and the area is the inside of it

There is no relationship between the perimeter and area of a rectangle. Knowing the perimeter, it's not possible to find the area. If you pick a number for the perimeter, there are an infinite number of rectangles with different areas that all have that perimeter. Knowing the area, it's not possible to find the perimeter. If you pick a number for the area, there are an infinite number of rectangles with different perimeters that all have that area.

You can't. The perimeter doesn't tell the area. There are an infinite number of shapes with different dimensions and different areas that all have the same perimeter.

Given any shape with a given area you can another shape with the same area but a different perimeter. And convesely, given any perimeter you can have another shape with the same perimeter but a different area. And these apply for the infinite number of shapes.

Most shapes have different perimeter than area, as far as value.

Yes

There is no standard relationship between perimeter and area. For example, you can have two rectangles that have the same perimeter, but different area.

Because the area is different than the perimeters

Knowing the area doesn't tell you the perimeter. There are an infinite number of different sizes and shapes with different perimeters that all have the same area. The shortest possible perimeter for any area is a circle. The shortest possible perimeter for any area with straight sides is a square. And also by the way, there are many different units for area. "Feet" is not one of them. "Square feet" is.

yes they can
