when area becomes equal to perimeter. Or the point when the relation PM > A, becomes the other way around, that is A >PM. Again numerically please let us remember.When s = 4: Till t reaches the value 4, PM > Area. At t = 4, PM = Area. When t > 4, A > PM. When t = 4,Area = PM =16. Now this is the second instance when area is equal to perimeter for integer values of the sides(s, t = 4,4). As far as we know (s,t) = (3,6) or (6,3) and (4,4) are the only instances when A = PM for integer values of the sides. Note the equipoint is t = 4 for s =4. The other integer solutions are,s= 1, t = -2; s =0, t =0; s = -2, t = 1.4)
When s =5: the equipoint is t = 10/3 =3.333…, that is area = perimeter = 15 in this case. When t>10/3, A > PM. When t < 10/3, Area < PM.If you wondered, how we got 10/3, all we did was solve the equation when PM = Area, or: 2 (5 +t) =5t which leads to 3t =10 or t =10/3.5)
When s = 6: we know from (3) above there is an integer equipoint at t = 3. And also therefore when t<3, A < PM and when t > 3, A >PM.6)
When s =7: equipoint is t = 14/5 =2.80.7)
When s = 8: equipoint is t = 2.66.8)
When s =9: equipoint is t = 2.57.9)
When s= 10: equipoint is t = 2.50.You can see the trend: as s increases, the equipoint t (or the point when the relation PM > A, becomes theother way around, that is A >PM) decreases. Does it indefinitely decrease? Or approaches a limit beyondwhich it does not go?
