The problem: find the dimensions of a rectangle whose area is 180cm2 and whose perimeter is 54cm.

What I know: area = length*width. If the perimeter is 54cm, then would the length * width be 1/2 the perimeter?

I am also unsure about the dimensions because I do not know how to represent 180cm2 in the equation. I tried to use a metric converter to feet and inches, but I had difficulty converting CM2 to feet and inches. Not that the dimensions need to be converted, I think all the calculations can be done in centimeters, but I am confused.

Please help me formulate the equation
