If the only information that you have is ... A) the figure is a rectangle, and B) the perimeter ... then you cannot calculate the area. The area of a rectangle is the length multiplied by the height., The perimeter is twice the length plus twice the height. So, a rectangle with a length of 9 units and a height of 1 until will have a perimeter of 20 units and an area of 9 square units. Another rectangle with a length of 6 units and a height of 4 units will also have a perimeter of 20 units, but it will have an area of 24 square units. To be able to calculate the area from the perimeter you need to know one of two additional things - either one of the measurements, or the ratio of the height to the length.

Then apply that to half the perimeter to find the length and breadth.

Perimeter = 24 units implies each side = 6 units So area = 6*6 = 36 square units.

Any positive value upto 36 square units. A 6x6 square will have the maximum area of 36 sq units; a 5x7 rectangle will have an area of 35 sq units, and the area will be reduced as you reduce one of the measures and increase the other so that their sum remains 12 units so that the perimeter is 24 units. 1x11 will be 11 sq units 0.1x11.9 will be 1.19 sq units 0.01x11.99 will be 0.1199 sq units 0.001x11.999 will be 0.011999 sq units, etc.

There are many possibilities. One is a rectangle with length 9.60555128 and breadth 2.39444872 units (to 8 dp).

36 square units. You can't express a perimeter in square units; a perimeter is a length expressed in ordinary units. If the perimeter of this square is 24 units then the answer above is correct.
