Let x=length, y=width.

"A farmer has 165 feet of fencing material in which to enclose a rectangle area." means

2(x+y)≤165 ....(1)

"He wants the length x to be greater than 50 feet" means

x>50 ......(2)

"and width y to be no more than 20 feet." means

y&le=20....(3)

The system is the collection of inequalities (1) to (3).
