1) Draw a pic of a rectangle. Label its sides L and W (length and width). 2. Write out the formula for the Perimeter, in terms of L and W, equating this to the given 60 cm. 3. Write out the formula for the area of this rectangle. 4. Solve the equation for P for either L or W. 5. Substitute the result for either L or W into your formula for the Area.
