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

Thanks! That makes a lot of sense!

32/100=16/50=8/25?
Is this the correct way to write 32% as a reduced fraction
