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

9 years agohmmm, well intuitively it seems like the rectangle with the least perimeter would be a square

9 years agosince that ensures the most edges are covered (which in aggregate are the perimeter)

9 years agoso that would be 3x3, so 12 foot perimter

9 years agoanother way to look at it, how many rectangles can be made

9 years ago1x9 is one

9 years ago3x3 is the only other

9 years ago1x9 has a 20 foot perimeter (9 + 9 + 1 + 1)

9 years ago3x3 has a 3+3+3+3 = 12 perimeter

9 years agoso again 3x3 is the one with the least perimeter

9 years agoThank you I have another question, can you help me

9 years agosure but I'd say ask another one to keep them separate

9 years agokk see it

9 years agohmm, ask a different question lol

9 years agoThe 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.
