The landscaper must build another rectangular patio with the least perimeter possible using 9 1-foot-square tiles. What should be the dimens

hmmm, well intuitively it seems like the rectangle with the least perimeter would be a square

since that ensures the most edges are covered (which in aggregate are the perimeter)

so that would be 3x3, so 12 foot perimter

another way to look at it, how many rectangles can be made

1x9 is one

3x3 is the only other

1x9 has a 20 foot perimeter (9 + 9 + 1 + 1)

3x3 has a 3+3+3+3 = 12 perimeter

so again 3x3 is the one with the least perimeter

Thank you I have another question, can you help me

sure but I'd say ask another one to keep them separate

kk see it

hmm, ask a different question lol

The perimeter of a paved area being built at a playround is going to be 46 meters. If the length and width are each a whole number of meters, what should the length and widht of the area be to cover the greatest possible area? draw a picture and make an organized list to solve.
