[latex]P=2L+2W[/latex]
[latex]A=WL[/latex]
Therefore, if [latex]P=34[/latex], and [latex]A=30[/latex], then let us find the factors of 30 that could give a sum of half of the perimeter which is 34. Therefore:
[latex]P=2*15+2*2[/latex]
[latex]A=15*2[/latex]
[latex]P=34[/latex]
[latex]A=30[/latex]
Therefore, the dimensions of this rectangle are 15 and 2.
