A rancher has 100 meters of fencing to enclose two adjacent rectangular corrals (see figure). The rancher wants the enclosed area to be 374 square meters. What dimensions should the rancher use to obtain this area? (Round your answers to 2 decimal places. Enter the smaller value of x first.)

x = m and y = m (smaller x value)

x = m and y = m (larger x value)

We can't see your figure, but the Related question below looks similar to yours, except it has 200 m vs your 100m

I am sure you can make the necessary changes.
