Dear Student

Let the breadth of the pool =x

Length of the pool will be 2+2x.

Given, Perimeter of the pool = 154 m

We know, for a given rectangle,

Perimeter=2(length+breath)
By using this formula, we get;

154=2(2+2x+x)

77=2+3x

75=3x

x=25m

Hence, the breadth of the pool is 25m

and Length= 52m

Thanks
