## Homework Statement

For this question , I tried to use L' = L -2e and B '= B , i ended up getting different final answer when i use L ' = L , B'= B -2e

In the notes , we can see that if the eccentricity were in the direction of

**length**of the foundation ,

**L '= L-2e , and B'= B ...**

But , in this question , I am not sure whether the eccentricity were in the direction of

**length**of the foundation or the

**width**of foundation

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Why cant I use L' = L -2e = L-2(0.25) = and B '= B to determine the answer. Since this question is a square foundation , I'm confused whether to use L' = L -2e = L-2(0.25) = and B '= B or L ' = L , B'= B -2e ... Can anyone explain please ?
