A square of 4, perimeter of 8. What about a 2x2 square?

A rectangle of 3x2 will give an area of 6, perimeter of 10. Try it.

the 4 unit must be rectangle

we get perimeter of 7 with 3x2

the 3x2 has perimeter 3+2+3+2=10

There will be no non-square rectangle of area four perimeter 8. A square is technically a rectangle, of equal sides.

it will be the same
