**Reiny**, Friday, May 6, 2011 at 10:17amSince both the length of sides and perimeter are linear

the perimeters would be in that same ratio as the sides.

So the sides are in the ratio of 5:4

The ratio of areas is equal to the square of their corresponding sides.

so

A/32 = 5^2 / 4^2

A = 32(25)/16 = 50

**Abdul-Rehman**, Friday, May 6, 2011 at 10:48amIf Smaller square = 32

Perimeter of Small Square = 4x

Perimeter of Larger Square = 5x

Perimeter Of Small Square = 4L

4x = 32

x = 32 / 4

x = 8

Then

5x = 5(8)

5x = 40
