36%.
Eg.
Let's assume the rectangle is referring to a square. (A sq is a rect)
Original Length > 10 cm
Area > 100 cm2
After Length > 8 cm
Area > 64 cm2
100 cm2  64 cm2 = 36cm2
36/100 * 100 = 36%
Hope this helps...
And its from the Henry Park SA2 Mathematics 2010 Paper which I just did.

1  9 > 9 digits
10  99 > 180 digits
Total > 189 digits
