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

7 x 19 cm

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.

The area doesn't tell you the perimeter. There are an infinite number of differentshapes with different perimeters that all have the same 1-acre area.The smallest possible perimeter for 1 acre is a circle. The perimeter (circumference)is 739.9 feet, and the diameter is 235.5 feet.The smallest possible perimeter for a 1-acre rectangle is 834.8 feet.That's if it's a square, with sides = 208.7 feet.The perimeter for a 1-acre rectangle can be anything more than that. It onlydepends on how long and skinny the rectangle is. Here are a few examples.All of the rectangles on this list enclose 1 acre:220' x 198', perimeter = 836'330' x 132', perimeter = 924'440' x 99', perimeter = 1,078'605' x 72', perimeter = 1,354'1,210' x 36', perimeter = 2,492'2,420' x 18', perimeter = 4,876'

The smallest perimeter possible is if the shape is a circle of radius 1.32 metres (approx). This gives a perimeter of 8.313 metres. If the shape is a rectangle, it will have minimum perimeter when it is a square with sides of 2.34 metres, giving a perimeter of 9.381 metres. But it cound be a rectangle with width 0.001 metres and length of 5500 metres giving a perimeter of just over 11 KILOmetres. The perimeter can be increased without limit.

11 cm2 zero, when two opposite sides are 12 cm, and the rectangle is infinitely thin

if the rectangle is a square 18yd x 18yd, the area = 324 sq yd. that us the largest area. As one side gets smaller, the other side get larger.If the smallest length you can measure is 1 yd., the rectangle would be 1 yd. x yd 35 yd.= 35 sq. yd. IF you can draw a line .01 yd.long, the other side of the rectangle is 36.99 yd. long. .01 yd x 36.99 yd = .3599 sq yd. There is no smallest area, only a largest area.

For any given area, the rectangle closest to a square will have the smallest perimeter; and the one that is most "stretched out" has the largest perimeter. In this case, that would be a width of 1 and a length of 2014.

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.

405 inches

The answer depends on what the 120 ft refers to. Is it a measure of a side, a diagonal or is 120 ft the perimeter and you wish to minimise something else?

I think this means we have a shape with a perimeter 39cm and we are asked what is the smallest area. It is a rectangle of length 19.5cm and width zero. Or perhaps it should read area 49 cm squared., what is the smallest periimeter. A circle with 49=pi x r2. Then perimeter=pi x 2r

Anything from the smallest possible width to just under 35 feet. ie 0<width<35 feet
