Largest = 86, Smallest 26

The smallest perimeter is 4*sqrt(24) = approx 19.6 cm There is no largest perimeter.

A 4 by 4 and a 1 by 7.

Type your answer here... give the dimensions of the rectangle with an are of 100 square units and whole number side lengths that has the largest perimeter and the smallest perimeter

For any given area, the rectangle closest to a square will have the smallest perimeter; and the one that is most "stretched out" has the largest perimeter. In this case, that would be a width of 1 and a length of 2014.

i think that the biggest one would be 1x100 (area) and 202 (perimeter) but i am not sure

if the rectangle is a square 18yd x 18yd, the area = 324 sq yd. that us the largest area. As one side gets smaller, the other side get larger.If the smallest length you can measure is 1 yd., the rectangle would be 1 yd. x yd 35 yd.= 35 sq. yd. IF you can draw a line .01 yd.long, the other side of the rectangle is 36.99 yd. long. .01 yd x 36.99 yd = .3599 sq yd. There is no smallest area, only a largest area.

If the shapes are similar, such are all circles or all squares, those with the largest perimeters would also have the largest areas. However, in general there is no direct relation. For example a 2 by 2 rectangle has an area of 4 and a perimeter of 8, but a 2000 by 0.0005 rectangle has an area of 1 and a perimeter of 4000.001.

The answer depends on what your criterion for deciding what is "largest". Any rectangle will have an area of 47916 square feet. Its perimeter can be infinitely large.

There is no such thing as a three sided rectangle. They have four sides. Length and width of a rectangle being THE SAME (having a 1:1 ratio) will provide the largest area possible. In other words, for a given perimeter, a square is the largest rectangle. If you mean a triangle (which has three sides), then all sides being equal will still yield the largest area.

If possible, find the largest and smallest possible values of the variable under study. Then the range = Largest Value minus Smallest Value.
