| **The area of the rectangle is 36 cm2 and the lengths of its sides are natural numbers, can the perimeter of the rectangle be equal …**

The area of a rectangle is found by the product of its length and width. Let’s find what combinations of numbers can give us the number 36:

1 * 36 = 36;

2 * 18 = 36;

3 * 12 = 36;

4 * 9 = 36.

Now let’s plug those numbers into the expression for the perimeter. The perimeter is the sum of the length and width times 2:

2 (1 + 36) = 74;

2 (2 + 18) = 40;

2 (3 + 12) = 30;

2 (4 + 9) = 26.
