| **The width of the rectangle is 2 times less than its length. Calculate the perimeter and area of the rectangle if its length is 12 cm.**

We know that the width of the rectangle is half its length, which is twelve centimeters. Find the width of the rectangle: 12 cm – 2 = 6 cm.

Find the perimeter of the rectangle: (12 cm + 6 cm) * 2 = 36 cm.

Find the area of the rectangle: 12 cm * 6 cm = 72 cm square.

Conclusion: the perimeter of the rectangle is thirty-six centimeters, and the area of the rectangle is seventy-two square centimeters.
