Express the area of a rectangle with the perimeter of 100 feet as a function of the lengh L of one of its sides

2. Relevant equations

100=2w+2l

3. The attempt at a solution

As far as I can get is,

L = 50 -2w

Just writing the function is a problem, I assume it's something like but I'm not sure, sorry if I'm completely off it's been a long day.

A(W) = (50-2w)(w) = 50w - 2w^2

or

A = w(50-w)
