| A rectangle is a rectangle whose opposite sides are equal and parallel.

Perimeter is the sum of all sides of the figure. Hence the formula: P = a + b + c + d, but since the opposite sides are equal, the formula takes the following form: P = 2a + 2b

Substitute the known values into the formula and get: P = 2a + 20
