  1. The perimeter is the distance around.
    The perimeter of a the rectangle is
    P = (2 * 8 1/2) + (2 * 3 3/4)

    What do you get?

  2. P = (2 * 8 1/2) + (2 * 3 3/4)

    4P = 390

    P = 195
    2
    = 97.5
    Am I correct?Or what did I do wrong! Please explain.

  3. How did you get this? 4P = 390

    P = (2 * 8 1/2) + (2 * 3 3/4)

    P = 17 + 7 1/2

    P = 24 1/2
