Mohammad Fatemihow can I animate this simple project

Hello everyone
I'm just want to make an animation with a simple shape and then repeat it with a delay .
for example , the x scale of the shape (a rectangle i.e) increased and then return to 0 . I want this shape , duplicated as a circle and all of the shape's scales animated automatically with a delay .
I tried trapcode echospace but I wonder if the scale can be changed in just one axis (x , y or z) . I tried and I failed to make this simple animation
p.s : I know that I can copy/paste the shape or duplicated it and move the timeline or keyframes , but I want it automatically and in a quick way .
sorry for my poor English .
this is an example that scribe my project :
It starts at second 05

(Why do you need it automated if it is just two shapes? You can copy, paste and move the keyframes in two seconds.)

Ignoring that question, you can pick whip the scale value from one layer to the other and use the valueAtTime() expression to get the scale value from an earlier point in time.
