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?

liv,

and then ill help because i have no idea what that means 
Geometry 
liv,
plus wouldnt the answer be 36 because there both square and there distance isnt far

Geometry 
Steve,
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

Con,
144
