The area of square S is equal to the area of rectangle R. What is the perimeter of square S?

(1) The length of one of the sides of rectangle R is twice the length of a side of square S.

(2) The area of rectangle R is 36.

Given \(a^2=l*b\) where \(a\) is the length of the square and \(l\) & \(b\) is the length and breadth of the rectangle

we need to find Perimeter \(= 4a\). Hence we need values of \(l\) & \(b\)

Statement 1: implies \(l=2a\). but nothing mentioned about breadth of the rectangle. Hence

insufficientStatement 2: \(l*b=36=a^2\)

so \(a=6\). Hence \(4a=4*6=24\).
