The perimeter of a rectangular swimming pool is 154 m. Its length is 2 m more than twice its breadth. What are the length and the breadth of the pool?

Let the length be “l” and breadth be “b”

The, perimeter = 2(l+b) = 154 m


Given: l = (2b + 2)m


Then, 2{(2b+2)+b} = 154


2{3b+2} = 154


3b+2 =


b =m


And, l =
