    a square is the largest area rectangle so; (64/3)^2 = 455 but that aint one of your options is it....hmmm

    3x = 64 x = 64/3 Area = x*x (64/3)*(64/3) = 455. hmmm

    the biggest area you can get from 4 sided figures with equal perimeters is a square... so i dont really know what they are asking; unless they want to kno wwhich one of these will fit

    but that doesnt fit the question asked does it; the "maximum area possible" doesnt mean "which of these is the max area you could make from it"
