| To solve this problem, recall the formula for the area of a rectangle. The area of the rectangle is equal to the product of the length and the width. S = a * b, where a is the length and b is the width. The perimeter of a rectangle is the sum of the lengths of all its sides. Since in a rectangle the opposite sides are equal, then P = 2 * (a + b), where a is the length, b is the width. We calculate the area and perimeter of a rectangle with sides of 2.51 m and 0.602 m.

P = 2 * (2.51 + 0.602) = 2 * 3.112 = 6.224 meters.

S = 2.51 * 0.602 = 1.51102 sq.m.

Answer: 6.224 m, 1.51102 sq. M.
