    Answer:

    Each side measures 10.5 yards.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    He has 40 yards.

    He uses 19 yards on one side.

    40 yd – 19 yd = 21 yd

    Now he has 21 yards left.

    He wants both sides to have the same length, so we divide 21 yards by 2.

    21 yards/2 = 10.5 yd

    Answer: Each side measures 10.5 yards.
