**Reiny**, Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 10:43pmDid you make a sketch?

width = x

length = 2x

but you dividing the length in two, so all sides are x

Count the x's , we need 7x

7x = 196

x = 28

the large rectangle is 54m by 28m

I assumed that the dividing side is parallel to the width.

If your dividing line is parallel to the length, then I would

define the original width as 2x and the length as 4x (thus avoiding fractions)

Then I see 3(4x) + 4(x) = 196

16x = 196

x = 12.25

and the field was 24.5m by 49 m
