A piece of wire can be folded into a rectangle whose dimensions are such that its length is 8 cm longer than its width. The area of the rectangle so formed is # 468cm^2#.
a) Determine
i)the dimensions of the rectangle
ii)the perimeter of the rectangle
b)The same piece of wire can also be folded into a circle. Taking π=22/7, find the radius of the circle and hence calculate its area.
