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.
That is not a square, it is a rectangle and it has a perimeter of 36 inches.
The perimeter is 35.78 inches.
The perimeter of a rectangle 12 inches by 8 inches is 40 inches. Its area is 2/3 of a square foot.
Perimeter = 32 inches. Area = 55 square inches.
Perimeter = 24 inches Area = 35 square inches
There is no way to compute the dimension of a rectangle from its area. 40 square inches, you see, could be 1"x40" or 2"x20", or 4"x10", or . . . . . . but they would all be 40 square inches.
A rectangle that's 7 x 1 inches has a perimeter of 16inches,and its area is 7 square inches.A rectangle that's 5 x 3 inches also has a perimeter of 16 inches,but its area is 15 square inches.A rectangle that's 6 x 2 inches also has a perimeter of 16 inches,but its area is 12 square inches.A square that's 4 inches on each side also has a perimeter of 16 inches,but its area is 16 square inches.A circle that's 16 inches around the outside also has a perimeter of 16 inches,and its area is 20.4 square inches.There's no reason why there has to be a connection between perimeter and area.
