I need help on this math problem.

The width of a certain painting is 5cm less than twice the length. The length of the diagonal distance across the painting is 107cm. Find the length and width. Round your answer to 2 decimal places.

How should I set up for this problem?

I was thinking of using pythagorus but I don't seem to be getting the right answer. I might be doing something wrong.

please help and thank you
