If rectangle ABCD has a larger area than rectangle EFGH, does it follow that ABCD must have a perimeter larger than that of EFGH?

Why or why not.

No

counterexample:

suppose you have a rectangle 10 by 12

Area = 120

Perimeter is 44

another rectangle 2 by 24

area = 48

perimeter = 52

32/100=16/50=8/25?

Is this the correct way to write 32% as a reduced fraction
