Two rectangles have the same shape. The perimeter of the larger one is twice the perimeter of the smaller one.How many times as great is the larger rectangle's area?

PerimeterLarge=2W+2L

area= WL

but the small one, is half the perimeter of the large, so permitersmall= w+L
and area = (w/2)(l/2)= 1/4 wl so the large area is 4 times the smaller.

hi i cant find the stupid answer im in 4th grade inrichment i NEED help!!!!
