 Question 342057: A rectangular lot is 80 meters wide and 130 meters long.Give the length and width of another rectangular lot that has the same perimeter but a smaller area. Answer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!80 by 130 p=2*80+2*130 p=160+260 p=420 is the perimeter. a=80*130=10,400 is the area. ------------ 60 by 150 new dimentions. p=2*60+2*150 p=120+300 p=420 same perimeter. a=60*150 a=9,000 smaller area.
