**Reiny**, Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 9:20amThe shape giving you the largest area is a circle

so 2πr = 12

r = 6/π

area = πr^2 = π(36/π^2) = 36/π

or appr 11.46 , more than double the area of the rectangle

If you had to stay with a rectangle, then with a perimeter of 12, we could have used a square with sides 3 units.

then the area would have been 9 inches^2
