The area of the rectangle is 50 yd2. What is the length of side y?

With this being an area problem, two measures are needed. The formula for area is A=lw. In order to find y, there must be another measure. Some examples of measurements that would work for a rectangle that has an area of 50 yd^2 are 2 and 25 or 10 and 5. Is there more information in the problem?

there is not enough information to solve this. The area is the product of the 2 sides and we have no information on their relationship
