me thank yu meen 50 square ft

area=length*wide=50

leng=2*wide

leng*wide=(2*wide)*wide=2*wide^2

wide=root(50/2)=root(25)=5

leng=10

Let width be x. then length is 2x. area = length × width. area = 2x × x area = 2xsq. also area is given 50 feet therefore 2xsq = 50. => xsq =25. =>Xsq =√25 =>X = 5. hence length = 2x=2×5=10. width =x =5
