Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ya it looks like the answer is E. since the sides can be different numbers that can add up to 16 as the perimeter.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Area of a rectangle is WxH and perimeter is 2(wxH) but not enough information is given to solve so the answer is E

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If it can be any number as the sides of that rectangle then you won't know what the area is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If we said the perimeter is 16, we can conclude that if we add a length and a width together we'll get 16/2 or 8. So let L = the Length, and width is (8L) Area of a rectangle is therefore L(8L) We dont get a number for the area from only knowing the perimeter. SO i'd say the answer is E.
