A square and a rectangle each have a perimeter of 100 feet. Explain how this is possible.

Side of Square is 25 feet.
One side of rectangle is 30 feet and other is 20 feet. 
There is an infinite number of rectangles which have the same perimeter as the square with perimeter of 100
As long as the length and width of the rectangle add up to 50
e.g.
10 and 40
1 and 49
3.567 and 46.433
√46 and (50√46)
etc.
