    Answer:

    Length of the rectangle = 16.5 feet

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Border length bought = 62.5 feet

    Including 5 feet extra

    Border length needed = 62.5 feet – 5 feet

    = 57.5 feet

    Border needed = perimeter of the rectangle = 57.5 feet

    Width of the rectangle = 12.25 feet

    Length of the rectangle = x feet

    Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(Length + width)

    57.5 =2(x + 12.25)

    57.5 = 2x + 24.5

    57.5 – 24.5 = 2x

    33 = 2x

    x = 33/2

    x = 16.5 feet

    Length of the rectangle = 16.5 feet
