    I drew a rectangle that is 3 meters by 10 meters. It has an area of 30 square meters and a perimeter of 26 meters, which rectangle has dimensions that give the same perimeter, but has different area?

    Other dimensions for rectangle with the same perimeter, 26 meters can bea. L=8, w=5 or P=2 (l + w)=2 (13)=26-here we have area A=5*8=40, it is different from the statement b. L=7, w=6 P=26, and Area=42 basically the sum of the sides has to equal 13 hope it helps
