    Answer:

    72 square feet

    Step-by-step explanation:

    the length is 12 and the width is 6. 12+12=24 and 6+6=12. 24+12=36

    so 12×6= 72

    Answer:

    72 square feet

    Step-by-step explanation:

    First, write the length of the rectangle in terms of the width, given that l is length and w is width. From the information given, l can be writen as 2w.

    The perimeter of a shape is just the length of all the sides added up. For this rectangle that length would be: w+2w+w+2w. which simplifies to 6w. Now we get 6w=36, because we know from the information given that the perimeter of the rectangle is 36 feet. Dividing both sides by 6 gives w=6, and 2w (the length) = 12.

    Finally, multiply the length by the width (12×6) for the area of the rectangle.

    Hope this helps!
