 Question 262397: A rectangle has a perimeter of 12 m. If each side is a whole number of meters, what are the possible dimensions for the length and width?Answer by drk(1908)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If the perimeter is 12, then the semi-perimeter is 6. Put another way P = 2L + 2W 12 = 2L + 2W by division, 6 = L + W we need to positive numbers that add to 6. We get (L,W) (1,5) (2,4) (3,3) (4,2) (5,1)
