what is the smallest perimeter possible for a rectangle whose area is 1000in^2 and what are its dimensions?

  • math -

    The smallest perimeter of a rectangle is obtained when the rectangle is a square,
    so ...
    x^2 = 1000
    x = √1000 = 10√10



    so the perimeter is 40√10 and its dimensions are
    10√10 inches by 10√10 inches.
