If the length of a rectangle is twice its width, w, write an expression to represent the perimeter of the rectangle. If the perimeter of the rectangle is 72 inches, what is the length and width of the rectangle?

Area could be 2 x 24, 3 x 16, 4 x 12, 6 x 8 (and vice versa). Perimeter equals 2L+2W. If the area was 2 x 24, the perimter would be 2(2)+2(24)=4+48=52. Do this with the 3 x 16, 4 x 12, and 6 x 8, and see which has the smallest perimeter.

Assume the scale factor is s where s<1 since the second polygon is smaller. If the scale factor s>1, that means the reciprocal should be use. Let P=perimeter of the larger polygon, then the perimeter of the smaller polygon is p=P*s

Calculus
cost is proportional to perimeter, so we want to minimize the perimeter enclosing 108 yd^2. If x is the length of the fence on the property line, 108/x is the other dimension. p(x) = 2(x + 108/x) dp/dx = 2(1 - 108/x^2) dp/dx=0 when x^2 = 108 x = 6√3 = 10.39 the pool is ...

Math Help Please
Do you know the formula of "area" and "perimeter"? Area=length x width perimeter=2(Length+width)
