# The length of one side of the rectangle is 2 cm, which is one third of the length

**The length of one side of the rectangle is 2 cm, which is one third of the length of the other side. Calculate the perimeter and area of this rectangle.**

Find what is the length of the second side of this rectangle.

In the problem statement, it is said that the length of the first side of this rectangle is 2 cm, which is one third of the length of its second side.

Therefore, the second side of this rectangle is 3 times larger than its first side and is 2 * 3 = 6 cm.

Find the sum of the lengths of the sides of this rectangle:

2 + 6 = 8 cm.

We find what the perimeter of this rectangle is equal to:

2 * 8 = 16 cm.

We find what the area of this rectangle is equal to:

2 * 6 = 12 cm ^ 2.

Answer: the perimeter of this rectangle is 16 cm, the area of this rectangle is 12 cm ^ 2.
