By Euclid.....we have this

 

Area A * Area C = Area B * Area D

 

40 * 30  = 25 * Area D

 

1200 =  25 * Area D     divide both sides by 25

 

48 = Area D 

 

 

cool cool cool

B has to be 5 x 5   since it is whole number w and d

so  A = 5 *x = 40     x = 8   A = 5 x 8

 

Then C = 6 x 5 = 30

and D is 6 x 8 = 48
