Framing a photo part 1

You want to frame a photo from your trip to send home. Select a frame that is suitable for a photo with a perimeter of 70 cm.

Is this frame suitable?

The perimeter of the rectangle is 25 cm + 20 cm = 45 cm so it would not fit into the photo frame.

You left out two sides of the rectangle. The perimeter is P = 2l + 2w = 90 cm. It still doesn't fit.

The photo might fit - depending on length and width.

I believe that the length is 25 cm and the width is 20 cm.

The frame's perimeter is 90 cm, whereas the photo's perimeter is 70 cm, so the frame is suitable (if the photo's length is less than the length of the frame).

So is the correct answer "no, it's not suitable to fit into the frame"?

You don't seem to understand the answers given. It MIGHT fit, depending on the dimensions, not just the total perimeter.

What do you mean by the dimensions?
