**Kirk**, Wednesday, August 22, 2012 at 9:22pmOk so we the the area A=13.5 units^2 and we know one side is .5 units. The formula for area of a rectangle is A=LW so we put 13.5=L*.5 and this gives us 13.5/.5=L so L=27 and the perimeter P is just the four sides added up P=2L+2W P=2(27)+2(.5)

**Reiny**, Wednesday, August 22, 2012 at 10:42pmside 1 --- x

side 2 --- y

perimeter = 2x + 2y

x = (1/2)(2x+2y) = x+y

y = 0

silly question!

A side cannot be .5 or 1/2 the measure of the perimeter, just think about it

check your wording of the question.
