Forum rules
Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Your answer COULD be true but only if the geometric area is a perfect square. However, !La! doesn't give us that information.

An area of 1,000,000 square meters is only true if 4000 linear meters is the perimeter of a true square. If the rectangle is not a square, the answer will be different.

You can't calculate the area of a rectangle based on the perimeter alone unless that rectangle is perfectly square.
