l = 10l > 10Total
w = 1022830
w > 10183250

Condition: Perimeter > 40
2(l + w) > 40
l + w > 20
Number of rectangles satisfying this condition = 8 + 18 + 32 = 58

Dear Vyshak, Request you to explain as to how you arrived at the break up of 22 / 8 / 18 and 32. I understood rest of the figures and calculation.

"20 percent of rectangles that are greater than 10 inches long are exactly 10 inches wide"
l>10 w=10 : (20%*40) = 8, then you just complete the rest of the table.

Length and width are atleast 10 inches.
Total number of rectangles = 80

Number of rectangles with length of 10 inches = 40 --> Number of rectangles with length greater than 10 inches = 40
Number of rectangles with width greater than 10 inches = 50 --> Number of rectangles with width of 10 inches = 30

20 percent of rectangles that are greater than 10 inches long are exactly 10 inches wide --> (1/5)*40 = 8 rectangles with l > 10 and w = 10.

You will be able to find the other blank cells once you know the above values.

Thank you, this helped.
I was confused with the wording "20 percent of rectangles that are greater than 10 inches long are exactly 10 inches wide"
