    Answer: (c) 12.5 cm
    Explanation:-

    Given- Length of a rectangle = 50 cm
    and side of other square = 25 cm
    Solve-
    Let be the width of the rectangle = X cm

    According to question, Area of a rectangle = Area of the square which side 25 cm

    X x 50 = 25 x 25              {Area of square = side x side and area of rectangle = length x width}
    X = 25 x 25/50
    X = 12.5 cm

    Hence, the width of the rectangle is 12.5 cm
