    The question asks for dimensions(plural). You've only posted one number.

    It is 50 and 25

    You partially answered the question.
    It asked for the dimensions, so you need a length and width of the rectangle.
    You are correct to say that the width must be 25 feet. but what is the length ?

  • Algbera -

    it should be written as ( 5ft x 10 ft) and (5ft x 5ft)...is that correct?
