The perimeters of a square and a rectangle are equal.If their areas be A m2 and B m2 , then which of the following is a true statement.

AA is less than equal to BA BA is greater than equal to Blet the equal perimeter be p m.

let the length of the side of square be x m and

the length and breadth of rectangle be l m and b m

therefore

area of the square :

perimeter of the rectangle is

area of the rectangle

since

thus

thus the area of the rectangle is less than or equal to area of the square.

hope this helps you.

cheers!!
