    hmmm, well intuitively it seems like the rectangle with the least perimeter would be a square

    since that ensures the most edges are covered (which in aggregate are the perimeter)

    so that would be 3x3, so 12 foot perimter

    1x9 has a 20 foot perimeter (9 + 9 + 1 + 1)

    3x3 has a 3+3+3+3 = 12 perimeter

    The perimeter of a paved area being built at a playround is going to be 46 meters. If the length and width are each a whole number of meters, what should the length and widht of the area be to cover the greatest possible area? draw a picture and make an organized list to solve.
