Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Perimeter of a rectangle = 2l+2w. Just multiply both expressions by two, and add them. That is the perimeter.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, when you multiply the expressions, you should get Perimeter = 2(x+1/x)+2(x+2/2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also, 2/2 = 1, so simplify. I'm not sure whether you mean (x+2)/2 or x+2/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That means you have to distribute the 2 into both functions, and add the result.
