10cm by 10cm (perimeter=40cm), 5cm by 20cm (perimeter=50cm), 50cm by 2cm (perimeter=104cm), 100cm by 1cm (perimeter=202cm). All of these rectangles' areas are 100cm2

no

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.

Yes. A 1 x 4 and a 2 x 3 have the same perimeter.

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.

There is no standard relationship between perimeter and area. For example, you can have two rectangles that have the same perimeter, but different area.

You can't tell the dimensions from the perimeter. There are an infinite number of different rectangles, all with different lengths and widths, that all have the same perimeter.

You can't. Different shapes with the same perimeter may have different areas.

Yes they But their areas are

No

That depends on the rectangle! You can have different rectangles with the same area, but with different perimeters.
