D, each statement stands by itself.

To explain:

1) Since it's a rectangle, one side is 10...meaning the other side is also 10.

(80 - 20)/2 = 30... so you can derive the area if you have length and width.

2) Statement gives: 2x + 2y = 80, x = 3y

2(3y) + 2y = 80
8y = 80
y = 10, x = 30

...you can go from there to derive.
