The circumference of the rectangle is 62 cm. A square whose side is as long as one side of a rectangle has a circumference of 56 cm. What is the area of each shape?

Correct answer:

S1 =  238 cm2
S2 =  196 cm2

Step-by-step explanation:

o1=62 cm o2=56 cm  o2 = 4a a=o2/4=56/4=14 cm  o1 = 2(a+b) b=o1/2a=62/214=17 cm  S1=a b=14 17=238 cm2
S2=a a=14 14=196 cm2
