Kenny has a rectangular cardboard with a ratio of length to width, 5:3. He wants to form a smaller rectagle by reducing the dimensions of the original rectangle. The ratio of what is cut off from the length (in cm) to what is cut off from the width (in cm) is 2:1. What is the length and width of the original rectangle if the smaller rectangle is a square with an area of 49cm2?
