Length = x
Width = 2x - 5

Perimeter =  Length + Length + Width + Width = 590 meters
Replacing length and width with variables to get x:
x + x + 2x - 5 + 2x - 5 = 590 meters
6x - 10 = 590 meters
6x = 590 meters + 10 meters
6x = 600 meters
6x / 6 = 600 / 6 meters
x = 100 meters

Length = x = 100 meters
Width = 2x - 5 = 2 (100) - 5 = 195 meters

Length = 100 meters
Width = 195 meters
