The square are equal. So the sides are equal. Once you put them side by side you can see the number of square sides that are on the perimeter of the rectangle. Davide the number of sides in the parameter by 360 and you should get the length of one side of a square.
once you know the side length just square it to get the area of one square
if x is the side of each square, what is the perimeter of the rectangle?
perimeter is AB+BC+CD+DA right?
so, it x is the side of each square, what is the length of AD?
and what is the length of AB?
so what is the perimeter of the rectangle in terms of x?
