# 36 unit squares are joined to form a rectangle with the least perimeter. Perimeter of the rectangle is

a. 12 units

b. 26 units

c. 24 units

d. 36 units

**Solution:**

It is given that

__Area of rectangle__ = 36 unit squares

We know that

36 = 6 × 6

It can be written as

36 = 2 × 3 × 2 × 3

So we get

36 = 2² × 3²

36 = 4 × 9

Here the sides of a rectangle are 4 cm and 9 cm

__Perimeter__ = 2(l + b)

Substituting the values

= 2(4 + 9)

= 2(13)

= 26 units

Therefore, the perimeter of the rectangle is 26 units.
