1.

Say the second piece is length x. The first piece is 3 times that, so it is 3x.

The 3rd piece is 20 feet shorter than it, so it is x-20.

Adding them we get 5x-20, and that equals 100.

Solving for x we get 24.

So the lengths are 72, 24 and 4.

Square 1: Side length 11

Square 2: Side length 5
