Best Answer

Perimeter = 2*(L + B) = 120

So L + B = 60 and therefore B = 60 - L.

Area = 800 = L*B = L*(60 - L)

So L2 - 60L + 800 = 0

=> (L - 20)*(L - 40) = 0

and so L = 20 or L = 40

When L = 20, B = 40 and

when L = 40, B = 20.

So the dimensions are 40m x 20m.

The area doesn't tell you the dimensions or the perimeter. It doesn't even tell you the shape. The shortest perimeter that could enclose that area would be a circle. The shortest perimeter with straight sides would be a square. If it's a rectangle, then there are an infinite number of them, all with different dimensions and different perimeters, that all have the same area.
