Recognize that rectangles that have the same area can have different perimenters.
Do rectangles with the same area necessarily have the same perimeter?Give an example to support your answer.
How I would handle this is to first look at the formula.
Make up a rectangle's length and width. Let's say 5 feet and 3 feet.
A = 5ft * 3ft
The area is 15 sq feet.
Make sense so far?
Now, we have the following equation to make up another area with.
15 = Length*Width
Put a number value (other than 5 or 3) in for the length. Then solve for the width. Or put a value in for the width--then solve for the length. Whichever :)
