Question and answer
The widths of two similar rectangles are 16 cm and 14 cm. What is the ratio of their perimeters? Of their areas?
The perimeter is a linear function of side length, so the ratio is the same, 8 to 7. - - - - - Area is a function of the square of side length, so its ratio is 64 to 49
