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?
