A rectangle has a length 10 m less than twice its width. When 2 m are added to the width, the resulting figure is a sqaure with an area of 196 m squared. Find the demensions of the original rectangle

    Width = X meters.
    Length = (2X - 10) meters.

    X + 2 = 2X - 10,
    X = 12.

    2X - 10 = 24 - 10 = 14.
