This question has no unique answer. A (3 x 2) rectangle has a perimeter = 10, its area = 6 A (4 x 1) rectangle also has a perimeter = 10, but its area = 4 A (4.5 x 0.5) rectangle also has a perimeter = 10, but its area = 2.25. The greatest possible area for a rectangle with perimeter=10 occurs if the rectangle is a square, with all sides = 2.5. Then the area = 6.25. You can keep the same perimeter = 10 and make the area anything you want between zero and 6.25, by picking different lengths and widths, just as long as (length+width)=5.
