The perimeter and area of a shape do not provide sufficient information. With a given perimeter, the largest area that you can enclose is a circle, but you can then flatten the circle to reduce its area. Similarly, in terms a of quadrilaterals, a square has the largest area, but it can be flexed into a rhombus whose area can be made as small as you like. All that can be said is that there is no shape with a perimeter of 12 units whose area is 12 square units.

A square....... It has 4 sides so 3 times 4 is 12 - Perimeter..... If each side is 3, 3 times 3 is 9 which is the area.

Yes, you can. If you make it 1 unit by 5 units

The area of a hexagon with a perimeter of 12 units is about 10.4 units2

perimeter = (5+5+12+12)= 34 area = (5*12) = 60 squared

A rectangle with sides of 3 and 4 units will meet the requirements.

Nothing

The rectangle has dimensions of [ 12 x 3 ].

4x3?

Appearently is 215 sf what ever that means :)

If the area of a square is 12 the perimeter is: 13.86

Yes a 2 by 6 rectangle for example.

The rectangle would have a width of 2 and a length of 4.

Area = Length of side x Length of side So one side measure Sq. root of 144 which is 12. The perimeter of a shape is the the length of all the sides added together so the perimeter of this square is 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 = 48

Yes, you can. If you make it 1 unit by 5 units
