A rectangle has one side 2 cm longer than the other, and the perimeter is 28, which is the area of the rectangle.

Find how many centimeters are the sum of the two sides of the rectangle.

We divide the perimeter into 2 parts.

28/2 = 14 cm.

We find the sum of the two sides without taking into account the difference.

We subtract 2 cm from 14 centimeters.


14 – 2 = 12 cm.

Find the width of the rectangle.

Divide 12 cm into 2 parts.

12/2 = 6 cm.

Determine the value of the length of the figure.

To do this, add another 2 cm to the width.

6 + 2 = 8 cm.

Thus, the area of the rectangle will be:

8 * 6 = 48 cm2

Answer: 48 cm2
