a) The area of a rectangle is 50 and the perimeter is 32 Calculate the dimensions of the rectangle to 2 decimal places (You must show your method).

Asked on: 16 Nov 2010

Area is width x height which is 50

Perimeter is 2w + 2h = 32

From these you need to work out the width and the height, so w + h = 16 by dividing through by two.

So we get:
w + h = 16
w x h = 50

Then you can solve it.
