The length of a rectangle is twice its width. If the perimeter of the rectangle is , find its area.

the length of a rectangle is 5 more then the width. Find the perimeter and the area of the rectangle

The perimeter of the rectangle is the sum of its 4 sides.

98 square feet

Let's take a look at this problem.Rectangle Perimeter = 2(l + w)Rectangle Perimeter =? 2(2l + 2w)Rectangle Perimeter =? (2)(2)(l + w)2(Rectangle Perimeter) = 2[2(l + w)]Thus, we can say that the perimeter of a rectangle is doubled when its dimensions are doubled.Rectangle Area = lwRectangle Area =? (2l)(2w)Rectangle Area =? 4lw4(Rectangle Area) = 4lwThus, we can say that the area of a rectangle is quadruplicated when its dimensions are doubled.

nope

There is no relationship between the perimeter and area of a rectangle. Knowing the perimeter, it's not possible to find the area. If you pick a number for the perimeter, there are an infinite number of rectangles with different areas that all have that perimeter. Knowing the area, it's not possible to find the perimeter. If you pick a number for the area, there are an infinite number of rectangles with different perimeters that all have that area.
