Of course. A rectangle that is 5 by 5 (yes, that's a square, but a square is a rectangle) has a perimeter of 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 20 and an area of 5 x 5 = 25. A rectangle that is 9 by 1 also has a perimeter of 20 (= 9 + 1 + 9 + 1) but an area of 9 (= 9 x 1).

Can different rectangles have the same area and perimeter?

It's very easy for two rectangles to have the same area and different perimeters,or the same perimeter and different areas. In either case, it would be obvious toyou when you see them that there's something different about them, and theywould not fit one on top of the other.But if two rectangles have the same area and the same perimeter, then to look at themyou'd swear that they're the same rectangle, and one could be laid down on the otherand fit exactly.

Can rectangles with the same perimeter have different areas?

Yes. Say there are two rectangles, both with perimeter of 20. One of the rectangles is a 2 by 8 rectangle. The area of this rectangle is 2 x 8 which is 16. The other rectangle is a 4 by 6 rectangle. It has an area of 4 x 6 which is 24.
