Is there a relationship between the area and the perimeter of a rectangle explain?

Yes, there is. The area of a rectangle sets a lower limit on its perimeter.If the area is A, then the quadrilateral shape with the smallest perimeter has sides of length sqrt(A). Therefore the minimum perimeter is 4*sqrt(A). The perimeter can have any value grater than that since the area of the rectangle can be maintained while making it thinner and longer and thus increasing its perimeter with out any upper limit.

Explain why the formula for the perimeter of a rectangle and the formula for the perimeter of a square are different?

When you think about it for a while, they're really NOT different. The rectangle formula needs a bit more detail, because its sides don't all have the same length, so its length and its width have to be handled separately. But the rectangle formula works perfectly well if you use it to find the perimeter of a square.
