The width is half the length: The perimeter is twice the length plus twice the width. If the perimeter is 3 times the length, twice the width must be the length.

What would the ratio of a two rectangles be if one rectangles width is 24Cm and length 30Cm the other rectangle is width of 36 Cm length of 42 Cm?

These are not similar rectangles so there is no obvious candidate for the ratio. Is it ratio of lengths (sides, perimeter, diameter), or ratio of area?

How do you 'find the ratio of its length to its perimeter?

Here's how to do that: 1). Find its length. 2). Find its perimeter. 3). Divide (its length) by (its perimeter). The quotient is the ratio of its length to its perimeter.

How much fence do you need for perimeter fence 8 acres?

The perimeter, for a given area, varies depending on the shape. It is different, for example, for a circle, for a square, and for rectangles of different length/width ratio.

If a rectangle has a perimeter of 70 feet what is the 4 to 5 length to width ratio?

If the length to width ratio is 4 to 5 then the length to width ratio is 4 to 5no matter what the perimeter. If the perimeter is 70 feet then the sides are 15.555... and 19.444... feet respectively.

How do you determine if rectangles are Simular?

If the 'ratio' (length/width) of one rectangle is the same number as (length/width) of the other one, then the two rectangles are similar.

What is the perimeter of a 6000 square meter block?

That depends on the exact form of the block - whether it is square, or different forms of rectangles. The perimeter to area ratio is not the same for all shapes.

What are all the ways a rectangle can be classified?

By the length of its sides, by its perimeter, by the ratio of its adjacent sides.

What is the ratio of the length of an equilateral pentagon to its perimeter?

A regular pentagon has all sides the same length. A pentagon has 5 sides. Its perimeter is the sum of its side_lengths which is 5 x side_length → ratio side_length : perimeter = 1 x side_length : 5 x side_length = 1 : 5

How do you find ratio of two rectangles?

If you are trying to find the ratio of the lengths of two similar rectangles, divide the length of one side of one rectangle by the corresponding side length of the other rectangle. To find the ratio between their volumes, divide the volume of one rectangle by the volume the other rectangle. To find volume, multiply the width of the rectangle by the length of the rectangle.

Are all rectangles congruent Explain your answer?

yes, all rectangles are in fact congruent. they're all congruent because its a ratio of sizes. if u have a rectangle with a length of 5 and a width of 2.5, and an another rectangle with a length of 10 and a width of 5, u have a ratio of sixes. the ratio would be 1:2. hope it helps (:

The length of rectangle A is 24 cm and the length of rectangle B is 96 cm The two rectangles are similar Find the ratio of the area of B to the area of A?


There are two rectangles what are the ratio of the first to the second?

I guess you mean the ratio of the areas; it depends if the 2 rectangles are "similar figures"; that is their matching sides are in the same ratio. If they are similar then the ratio of their areas is the square of the ratio of the sides.

Two triangular prisms are similar. The perimeter of each face of one prism is double the perimeter of the corresponding face of the other prism. How are the surface areas of the figures related?

The ratios of areas are the squares of the ratio of lengths (and the ratio of volumes are cubes of the ratio of lengths). As the perimeter of the second is twice the perimeter of the first, each length of the second is twice the length of the first, and so the ratio of the lengths is 1:2 Thus the ratio of the areas is 1²:2² = 1:4. Therefore the surface area of the larger prism is four times that of the smaller prism.

How how do you find the ratio of an area?

The question is not specific enough for a sensible answer. It could refer to the ratio of the area of the shape to its perimeter or depending on its shape, the ratio of the area to the length of one or more of its sides.

How do you fine the length in a similar rectangles?

If you are given two similar rectangles, one with all measurements and the other with only one, you first need to find the conversion ratio. Let's call the rectangle that you know everything about, rectangle A, and the other rectangle B. You take the ratio of the side of rectangle B to rectangle A. You then multiply the length of rectangle A by this value, to find the length of rectangle B.

Is it true that the greater the perimeter the greater the area?

No, in general that is not true. For two similar figures it is true. But you can easily design two different figures that have the same perimeters and different areas, or the same area and different perimeters. For example, two rectangles with a different length-to-width ratio.
