A Rectangle and a Square


A square is cut from the centre of a rectangle. The length of the square's side is exactly half the length of the rectangle's longest side. After cutting out the square, it is found that the rectangle's area has been reduced by exactly 38%.  The sides of the rectangle and square are all two-digit integers. Find their values.
