I got 25. Is this correct.

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

• Algbera -

It is 50 and 25

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 ?

50 and 25 are correct
