Hey this Is Brendyn Mahon again and this time It was easy I think 6 times 4 =is the 24

its not letting put an answer

8+8+4+4 for rectangle with perimeter of24

a perimeter of 24 has sides of 8+8+4+4 with an area of 32

36 a 6 in square

the greatest area of a rectangle with 24 units is 20 units.

P=24 units

l=4

w=6

so 6 x 4= 24

8+8+4+4

Answer from Zain johar

P= 5+7+5+7=24

w=7

L=5

A= 7×5=35 units

I got the answer 36 units.

24

6 by 6 works because a square can be a rectangle but a rectangle isn’t a square

6 by 6 because 6+6+6+6=24 and 6×6=36

8+8+4+4=26

8+8+4+4= 24 for the perimeter then the greastet area is 32 square units.

9+9+4+2

6×6 = 36

8+8+4+4=24

36 6+6+6+6=24 6X6= 36!!

The answer is 36.

perimeter is 10 + 2 + 10 + 2 =24 sq inches

Area is 10 x 2 = 20 sq inches

6×4=24, i also have it on the whiteboard to prove it.

8+8+4+4=24
