Ratio length to widht = \(\frac{4x}{2x}\) = \(\frac{4}{2}\) = \(\frac{2}{1}\). All the answers are in ration 2:1 except C. Wdyt?

In other words, the length of the rectangle is twice its width. The only pair of numbers in which one is not twice the other are 16 and 10, so they cannot be the length and width of the rectangle. Answer: C
