we have to find out the perimeter of the rectangle which is 2( l+w) :

1. The area of the rectangle is 48 --> not sufficient as possible (l,w) can be (4,12),(8,6),( 2,24),(16,3).
2. The length of a diagonal of the rectangle is 10.--> sufficient. As rectangle is right angled and only (8,6) satisfy the equation 10^2= 8^2+6^2.

Can somebody explain the problem.

(1) The area of the rectangle is 48.
(2) The length of a diagonal of the rectangle is 10.


Perimeter = l + w

Statement 1: The area of the rectangle is 48
i.e. l*w = 48
Case 1: l = 6 and w = 8
Case 2: l = 1 and w = 48, Hence,
NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: l^2 + w^2 = 10^2 = 100
Case 1: l = 6 and w = 8
Case 2: l = \(5\sqrt{2}\) and w = \(5\sqrt{2}\), Hence,
NOT SUFFICIENT

Combining the two statements
l and w can only be 6 and 8 (or vice versa)
but in each case Perimeter = 2(6+8) = 28
SUFFICIENT

Answer: option C

I hope this helps! :)

i spent more time on thinking whether B is a trap or not, since 10 is 2x5, and we know the pythagorean triplet 3-4-5 multiplied by 2 or 6-8-10.
even the first statement might suggest that l=8 and w=6 since 6*8 = 48
but!!!
if you do the math, you see that lw = 48, and l^2 + w^2 = 100
knowing that (a+b)^2 = a^2+2ab+b^2, we can easily see that l^2+2lw+w^2 = 196 or (l+w)^2 = 196
l+w will thus be 14 and the perimeter 32. we can get to the correct answer only by combining the two statements.
C is the answer.
