| 1. Let the second side of the rectangle be x m. Let’s find it if its length is 18 m, and the sum of all sides, that is, the perimeter is 62 m:

P = 2 (a + b);

2 (18 + x) = 68;

18 + x = 68/2;

18 + x = 34;

x = 34 – 18;

x = 16;

This means that the width is 16 m.

2. Find the area of a rectangle with a length of 18 m and a width of 16 m:

S = ab;

S = 18 * 16 = 288 m²;

Answer: the area of this rectangle is 288 m².
