If rectangle ABCD has a larger area than rectangle EFGH, does it follow that ABCD must have a perimeter larger than that of EFGH?

Why or why not.

    No
    counterexample:
    suppose you have a rectangle 10 by 12
    Area = 120
    Perimeter is 44

    another rectangle 2 by 24
    area = 48
    perimeter = 52

    Thanks! That makes a lot of sense!

    32/100=16/50=8/25?
    Is this the correct way to write 32% as a reduced fraction
