I need some help with a couple questions I was stuck on

1) Molly and Polly have two identical paper rectangles. Molly divides her rectangle into two non-overlapping rectangles with perimeters 33 and 35 inches. Polly divides her rectangle into two non-overlapping rectangles with perimeters 34 and 36 inches.

Compute the area of Molly’s original rectangle (in square inches).

2)

Suppose 101 girls buy greeting cards. One of the girls, Suzie, buys 1000 fewer cards than the girls’ average.

How many more cards should Suzie buy so that she has 1000 more cards than the new girls’ average?

Assume that the other girls do not make any purchases after their initial purchase.
