    no

    Laying the tiles in a line gives you a perimeter of 50 inches.

    24 + 24 + 1 + 1

    Can you arrange the tiles in any other way to give you a larger perimeter?

    12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 1 + 1

    Print this graph paper and draw your 24 tiles on it.

    Remember that each tile measures 1 inch on each side.

    The perimeter is the distance around the figure.
