Please see figure in the attached file.
PERIMETER=2(A+B) WHERE A AND B ARE TWO SIDES OF THE RECTANGLE..... A --> THE LENGTH B-- > THE BREADTH
AS THE TWO SQUARES ARE IDENTICAL THE DIAGONALS ARE EQUAL TO B . THEREFORE A=2B ..

Interesting questions and i like such questions. Since diagonal of the square is equal to side of the square*sqrt2 then we have one side of the reqtangle is equal to two diagonal of the square and another side of the rectangle is equal to one diagonal. All the sides (perimiter) are equal to 6 diagonals. So the side of the square is equal to 18\sqrt{2}/6\sqrt{2}=3. Then perimiter of the square 3*4=12 _________________

A. 8√2 B. 12 C. 12√2 D. 16 E. 18
If y'all take a look you can tell that the length + width is equal to 3 diagonals of the square. Therefore, Since 2(x+y) = 18 sqrt (2) then x+y = 9 sqrt (2) Now as stated before we have 3s sqrt (2) = 9 sqrt (2) s = 3, 's' stands for side of the square. Perimeter = 12
