How to write two dimension of a slot or rectangle?

I have to write two dimension in one as the picture with its own tolerances?

Is it possible?

Have you tried using a note with Relationships and using the expressions?

Can you create all the limits you need as expressions and create your note linking the expressions similar to the example below?

Or, not one I would use, but you can simply use two dimensions and turn off the leaders and arrows then align with the note.

The short answer is that there is no dimension type that does exactly what you want. Fortunately, you can use a note and reference expressions and use the "two lines of text" fraction type to create your own dimension note. In the note dialog you can change the category to "1/2 fractions" to help enter the fiddly formatting bits. The final result will look something like:

 

<X0.2@p1><T+.03!-.25> x <X0.2@p2><T+.03!-.25>

Note that the tolerance values are 'hard coded' into the string above; you could reference expressions for the tolerance values as well if you want.
