If I good understand the task:

Let a=1 (Side of Triangel)

oT=3 (perimeter of triangel)

ST=0,4330127... (Surface of Triangel)

SR=0,1433756...(Surface of Rectangel)

h=SR/b (h=shorter side of Rectangel, b=longer side of Rectangel)

Then b

and b=1,39665480...; h=0,10335451929... and b/h=r=13,51446313...

True-false test:

b*h=0,1033451929...*1,39665480...=0,14433756=ST/3

2*(b+h)=2*(1,39665480+0,1033451929)=3.
