I was originally asked for the dimensions of the poster that uses least paper and contains a 50 in² typed area. I've shown that using the least paper implies the typed area is 5 inches wide and 10 inches high. From those dimensions, I've explained how to find the width and height of the entire poster (i.e., including the borders). I've also stated that the area of the poster (including the borders) is 162 in². Is there something I haven't covered?

Ok, thank you so much for help. I will try to get the least amount of paper.
Thank you again for the help.
