Chris,
I need to have 7 and have already used up the whole numbers 1X13, 2X12, 3X11, 4X10, 5X9, 6X8, so what is the 7th rectangle measurement????

Chris,
Thanks. I thought a square would not be classified as a rectangle.

squares are rectangles, but rectangles are not all square. Look at the definition of a rectangle in your text.
