The dimensions of the reduced rectangle are 5(length) and 4(width).

The original length of the rectangle= 20

The original width of the rectangle=16

What is a scale factor?

It is the factor by which the size or dimension of an object is dilated.

Reduced length/Original length = 0.25

Reduced length = 0.25 * original length

Reduced length = 0.25 * 20

Reduced length = 5

Reduced width/Original width = 0.25

Reduced width = 0.25 * original width

Reduced width = 0.25 * 16

Reduced width = 4

Therefore, the dimensions of the reduced rectangle are 5(length) and 4(width).
