# Find a formula for the described function and state its domain.58. A rectangle has area 16 m2. Express the perimeter of the rectangle as a function of the length of one of its sides.

To determine

To find: The function of the perimeter of the rectangle in terms of the length of one of the sides of rectangle and the function domain.

Explanation

Given:

The area of the rectangle is 16m2 .

Formula used:

Area of the rectangle, A=l×b , where ‘l’ is the length of the rectangle and ‘b’ is the breadth of the rectangle.

Perimeter of the rectangle, P=2(l+b) , where ‘l’ is the length of the rectangle and ‘b’ is the breadth of the rectangle.

Calculation:

Let the length of the rectangle be l and the breadth be b. Since the area of the rectangle is 16m2 ,

l×b=16m2 (1)

Express the equation (1) in terms of length
