If you have a rectangle with 24 square units 3 lines down 8 across how can you have a 4 unit rectangle with a perimeter of 8 around the outside also 6 units with a perimeter of 10 in a seprate problem

A square of 4, perimeter of 8. What about a 2x2 square?

A rectangle of 3x2 will give an area of 6, perimeter of 10. Try it.

the 4 unit must be rectangle

we get perimeter of 7 with 3x2

the 3x2 has perimeter 3+2+3+2=10

There will be no non-square rectangle of area four perimeter 8. A square is technically a rectangle, of equal sides.

it will be the same
