Let x be the breadth of the rectangle.

As area of square is 49 cm^2, its side is 7 cm.

Perimeter of square = 28 cm.

Perimeter of rectangle = 2(9.3 + x) = 28 cm

Thus, x = 4.7 cm

Are of rectangle = 4.7 * 9.3 = 43.71 cm^2

Thus, the square has greater area.

Let area of square be x^2

and here x^2=49

x=+-7

since length can't be negative so a=7

and we know that

perimeter of rectangle = perimeter as square(.given)

length of rectangle =9.3(given)

perimeter of square =4x (where x is the length of side)

plugging in the values

and perimeter of rectangle=2(l+b) where l is length and b is breadth

we get

4x = 2( l + b )

plugging in the given values we get

4*7=2(9.3+b)

28=18.6+2b

28-18.6=2b

9.4/2=b

b=4.7

area=l*b

=4.7*9.3

4.7 * 9.3 = 43.71

hence 49>43.71

so square has more area

and here x^2=49

x=+-7

since length can't be negative so a=7

plugging in the given values we get

4*7=2(9.3+b)

28=18.6+2b

28-18.6=2b

9.4/2=b

b=4.7

area=l*b

=4.7*9.3

4.7 * 9.3 = 43.71

hence 49>43.71

so square has more area
