A kindergarten school has square mats in two colors, red and blue. The ratio of the perimeter of the red mat to the perimeter of the blue mat is 2 : 1. The area of the blue mat is 36 square feet.

What is the area of the red mat?

    whats a ratino
    and then ill help because i have no idea what that means

  • Geometry - ,

    plus wouldnt the answer be 36 because there both square and there distance isnt far

  • Geometry - ,

    if linear dimensions are scaled by n, area is scaled by n^2

    Since red:blue perimeter is 2:1,

    red:blue area is 2^2:1

    4*36 = 144

  • Geometry - ,

    144
