Area = L x W = 12 cm²

........⇒ L = 12 cm² / W

....................W = 4 cm

........⇒ L = 12 cm² / (4 cm)

........⇒ L = 3 cm

Perimeter = 2 (L + W)

.................= 2 (3 cm + 4 cm)

.................= 2 (7 cm)

.................= 14 cm.................ANS

The sides are 4,3,4 and 3

Area = 4 x 3 = 12 sq cm

Perimeter = 4 + 3 + 4 + 3 = 14 cm.

The area of the rectangle is the length x the width

So .. 12 = 4 x ?

? = 12/4

? = 3

So .. the perimeter is 3 + 3 + 4 + 4 = 12cm
