Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since 2 rectangles are similar... their height to breadth ratio should be equal if the breadth of the first one is "x" and the second one is "y" then 3/x = 9/ y which means y = 3x if the perimeter of the first rectangle is P P = 3 + 3 + x + x = 6 + 2x if the perimeter of the second rectangle is P' P' = 9 + 9 + y + y = 18 + 2y = 18 + 6x = 3 ( 6 + 2x ) = 3 P which means the 3 times the perimeter of the first one :)
