Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we have the formula for the perimeter of a rectangle as 2(h+b) we know that h=3b15 so perimeter = 2(h+b) = 2( (3b15) + b) = 8b  30 we are told that area = 450mm sqd area = b*h = b*(3b15) = 3b^2  15b = 450mm using the quadratic formula we get 2 lengths for b, only one will make sense to use. Plugging in for the perimeter equation derived above should give you the answer
