Name: Jane Who is asking: Student Level: Secondary

Question: A rectangular label has an area of 176cm2 and a perimeter of 54cm. Find the dimensions of the label.

Hi Jane,

Draw a rectangle and label two of the sides x and y.

What is the value of x y? What is the value of x + y?

This gives you two equations that you can solve for x and y.
