Area of a rectangle = Area of a square
lb = s*s
Perimeter of the square = 4s = $$4\sqrt{lb}$$
Perimeter of the rectangle = 2l + 2b which can't be expressed just in terms of the perimeter of the square

Therefore, answer is E.

Bunuel, besides you who can I follow to get new quant questions on a regular basis?

E, for this one I plugged in numbers. A square with sides of 4, a rectangle with a length of 2 and width of 8. I then check my numbers with a square with sides of 10 and rectangle with a length of 4 and width of 25. The ratios of the perimeter were different, but I went ahead and checked the answer anyway.

Let’s say the rectangle has dimensions 2 and 8, and the square has a side length of 4. Each shape has an area of 16. The perimeter of the rectangle is 2(2 + 8) = 20 and that of the square is 4(4) = 16. We see that none of choices A to D are correct, so the correct answer is choice E.

Answer: E
