With a rectangle, opposite sides will be the same length. So you have 5+5, and 7+7. That adds up to 24, which is the distance around the outside, or perimeter.

Is length of the rectangle and the perimeter are the same?

No. The length is the measurement of the distance from the bottom to the top of the rectangle, or from one side to the other side. The perimeter is the distance all the way around the rectangle.


What is the formula for the perimeter of a square and rectangle?

The perimeter of any rectangle is [ 2 x (length + width) ]. Since the length and width of a square are equal, the perimeter of a square is also [ 2 x (side + side) ] = (4 x side).

Can you find the perimeter if you know area of a rectangle?

You can find the perimeter of a rectangle if you know its area and the length of one side. Divide the area by the length of the known side and the quotient will be the length of a side perpendicular to the known side, and then multiply the sum of the two sides by two to find the perimeter.


How does doubling the side lengths of a rectangle affect its perimeter?

Both the side lengths and the perimeter are linear measurements, therefore they are proportional. In other words, twice the side length results in twice the perimeter.


How do you calculate the dimensions of a rectangle if you know the perimeter and the length?

A rectangle by definition has two pairs of sides with equal length. Since perimeter equals the length of all the sides. The equation for the perimeter of a rectangle could be thought of as: 2L + 2W = P Where L represents the length of one side of the rectangle and W represents the length of the adjacent (next to) side of the rectangle. If you know the length of one side and the perimeter, plug those values in as L and P and then solve for W. That will give you L and W which are the dimensions of the rectangle.


What is the side length?

it depends on what shape it is. square: perimenter/4 is one side's length. triangle: perminter/3 rectangle: perimeter/height = length or perimeter/length = height

What is the area of a rectangle with a perimeter of 48 and a length of 5?

A rectangle with a perimeter of 48 and 1 side equal to 5 would have its other sides lengths of 5, 19, 19. Such a rectangle would have an area of 95 sq/m. Your question is somewhat strange, as the "length" of a rectangle generally refers to the longer side - in this case the length would be 19 and the width 5.


How does the perimeter of rectangle change when the length of side is decreased by 1 unit?

It depends on what side is being decreased All rectangles have perimeter 2l+2w where l is the length and w is the with if the length is decreased by 1 then the rectangle will have perimeter 2(l-1)+2w, similarly if the with is decreased by 1 then it will have perimeter 2l+2(w-1).
