# How do you find the perimeter and area of a rectangle with length 10.4cm and width 4.9cm?

perimeter = $30.6 c m$

area = $50.96 c {m}^{2}$

#### Explanation:

perimeter of a rectangle is $2 L + 2 W$

= $2 \left(10.4\right) + 2 \left(4.9\right)$

= $20.8 + 9.8$

= $30.6 c m$

area of a rectangle is $l w$

= $10.4$ x $4.9$

= $50.96 c {m}^{2}$
