| **The length of the side of the rectangular section is 96 meters, and the width is 16 times less. Find the perimeter and area of the site.**

Let’s find what the smaller side of the site is equal to, if it is known that it is 16 times less than the length, which is 96 m:

1) 96/16 = 6 (m).

We determine the perimeter of the site, knowing that the site has the shape of a rectangle, using the ratio: P = 2 * (a + b).

2) P = 2 * (96 + 6) = 2 * 102 = 204 (m).

We calculate the area of the site using the known pattern: S = a * b.

3) S = 96 * 6 = 576 (m2).

Answer: the site has a perimeter of 204 m, and the area of this site is 576 m2.
