To find the perimeter you add and to find the area we multiply.
perimeter is the measure around the figure; area is the measure within the figure formula: perimeter: length+length+width+width=perimeter (for square or rectangle) area: length times width= area ( for square or rectangle)
Area is length times width, perimeter is twice the sum of length and breadth.
the area of a rectangleis 100 square inches. The perimeter of the rectangle is 40 inches. A second rectangle has the same area but a different perimeter. Is the secind rectangle a square? Explain why or why not.
The perimeter of the rectangle is the sum of its 4 sides.
find the perimeter and area of a rectangle that is 15cm long and 5cm wide
No. For example, a 4x1 rectangle will have an area of 4 and a perimeter of 10. A 2x2 rectangle will have the same area of 4, but a perimeter of 8.
The length of a rectangle is twice its width. If the perimeter of the rectangle is , find its area.
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.
the length of a rectangle is 5 more then the width. Find the perimeter and the area of the rectangle
No,for example, a 1x2 rectangle has an area of 2 but a perimeter of 6
Yes, the perimeter or area of a rectangle can be an irrational number. Thanks
156 It is impossible to calculate the area of a rectangle from its perimeter if no other dimension is known. The area of a rectangle is the product of its length and width, and the perimeter is twice the sum of its length and width.
how do you find the area of a rectangle witha perimeter of 36 in You don't. You need more information For example a 1 x 17 rectangle has a perimeter of 36 and its area is 17. But a 2 x 16 rectangle also has a perimeter of 36 and its area is 32.
