1. you have 2 lengths of 125, so you use up 250. Now you have 50 left, the 2 other sides must be even in order to be a rectangle. So divide 50 by 2 and you get 25. Therefore the rectangles sides are 125,125, 25,2.

2. But maybe use algebra. I do not know what math carly is taking.
2 L + 2 W </= 300
250 + 2 W </= 300
2 W </= 50
W </= 25
