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

etc.....

 

Need diagram or more info.....See what I mean?
