| 1. If we imagine that the width is equal to about, then the length is equal to 1.4o. By increasing the sum of the length and width by 2 times, we get the value of the perimeter of the rectangle, we solve the resulting equation:

2 * (o + 1.4o) = 9.6,

2о + 2.8о = 9.6,

4.8o = 9.6,

o = 9.6 / 4.8,

o = 2.

2. Find the length:

2 * 1.4 = 2.8.

3. Find the product of the length and width of the rectangle, get its area:

2.8 * 2 = 5.6 m2.

Answer: the area of the rectangle is 5.6 m2.
