There are almost infinite possibilities as you get smaller and smaller

The dimensions of the rectangle will then work out as 14 cm by 10 cm because the perimeter is 14+10+14+10 = 48 cm

Type your answer here... give the dimensions of the rectangle with an are of 100 square units and whole number side lengths that has the largest perimeter and the smallest perimeter

The smallest is just over 40 units. At 40 units it is no longer a rectangle but a square. There is no largest perimeter.

Largest = 86, Smallest 26

The smallest perimeter is 4*sqrt(24) = approx 19.6 cm There is no largest perimeter.

L + W >= 24, L = W + 4, Possible dimensions 14 and 10 giving an area of 140 sq cm.

It is 5 units * 20 units. A smaller perimeter can be attained by a square but the question specified a rectangle.

A 9 x 1 rectangle has a perimeter of 20 and an area of 9; A 9.5 x 0.5 rectangle has the same perimeter but an area of 4.75; You can go a long way along this road...
