A rectangle and a square have the same perimeter. One side-length of the rectangle is longer than the other. What is the ratio between the areas of the rectangle and the square?
ps. the answer isnt 4/5
Not enough info or diagram given.....
Suppose the square is 5 x 5 perimeter = 20 area = 25
Rectangle could be 9 x 1 Perimeter = 20 area = 9
Rectangle could be 8x 2 perimeter = 20 area = 16
rectangle could be 4 x 6 perimeter = 20 area = 24
Need diagram or more info.....See what I mean?
