BY HOW MUCH DOES THE PERIMETER OF THE RECTANGLE EXCEED THE PERIMETER OF THE SQUARE. .. Area of rectangle = 16*9= 144 m^2 .. Area of square = L^2 = 144 L= 12 m .. Perimeter of rectangle = 2*(L+W) ===>2*(16+9) Perimeter = 50 m ... Perimeter of square = 4*L = 48 m .. Difference = 2 m ... m.ananth@hotmail.ca
