Present perimeter: 16 + 28 = 44

44 * 1.5 = 66 = new perimeter

The perimeter you chose is 32 + 56 = 88

Check out the other options. Which produces a perimeter of 66 cm?

P = 2L + 2W

Present perimeter:

P = 2(8) + 2(14)

P = 16 + 28

P = 44

Use trial and error.

Using your choices, figure out the perimeter for each set of dimensions.

P = 2L + 2W

Which produces a perimeter of 66?

Let's check it out.

P = 2(21) + 2 (12)

P = 42 + 24

P = 66

Right!
