Let l be the length of the parcel of land. Recall that the area of a rectangle is the product of its length and width:
$$\displaystyle{A}={l}{w}$$
Substitute A=1125 square feet and w=25 feet:
$$\displaystyle{1125}={l}{\left({25}\right)}$$
$$\displaystyle\frac{{1125}}{{25}}={l}$$
$$\displaystyle{l}={45}$$
So, the length of the parcel of land is 45 feet.
