Infinitely many.

Let L be any number greater than or equal to sqrt(24) units.

and let B = 24/L

Then the area of the rectangle with length L units and breadth B units will be

L * B = L *24/L = 24 square units.

Since there are infinitely many possible values for L, there are infinitely many possible answers to the question.

Squares are rectangles. Draw a 2 unit square.

### How can you say that area of square is equal to the square of its sides?

All squares are rectangles (though the condition is not true vice-versa). Consider a square of side 'a' units and a rectangle of length 'l' units and breadth 'b' units. The area of the rectangle is given by lxb. Now, since all rectangles are squares, we can apply the same formula for the square. Therefore, area of the square = lxb. But, 'l' and 'b' is the same as 'a'. This implies, area of the square = axa = a^2 (a square).

Feet are length units, square feet are area units. It is not possible to convert between the two.

### What is the relationship between the perimeters of rectangles with the same area?

None, other than that if the area is x square units, the perimeter must be greater than or equal to 4*sqrt(x) units. It is possible to construct a rectangle for each and every one of the infinitely many values greater than 4*sqrt(x) units. Consequently, there can be no relationship as suggested by the question.

### What is the greatest possible area for a rectangle?

Area of any rectangle in square units is its length multiplied by its width.

### What is the area of a square that has a side of 6x 7?

Thanks to limitations of the browser used for posting questions, it is not possible to tell whether the sides are 6x - 7 units or 6x + 7 units. For 6x - 7 units, area = 36x2 - 84x + 49 square units. For 6x + 7 units, area = 36x2 + 84x + 49 square units.
