  11. if the length is 6 then the other side has to be 6 i remember perimeter is adding all sides so if i already have 6 and 6 which equals 12 i would subtract from the perimeter 16 16 minus 12 equals 4 so the other sides have to both be a 2 so i would multiply the 2 different sides 6 and 2 and i get 12 square centimeters

  12. its 12 square centimeters

  14. 12 cm

  15. I think it is 12 sq.cm

  16. I think that the answer is 12 centimeters because it says that the length is 6 and the perimeter is 16 and to get the perimeter to 16 so I did 6+6=12 for the length so 12-_=16 that is 4 so then i split 4 in half and that is 2 for width so i drew rectangle and on the length sides i put 6 and on the width sides i put 2 then split it in half and drew 5 lines the opposite way then counted the boxes so thats how i got twelve.
