Let the breadth be x m. The length will be (2x + 2) m. 

Perimeter of swimming pool = 2(l + b) = 154 m

2(2x + 2 + x) = 154

2(3x + 2) = 154

Dividing both sides by 2, we obtain

293X + 2/2 = 154/2

3x + 2 = 77

On transposing 2 to R.H.S, we obtain

3x = 77 − 2

3x = 75

On dividing both sides by 3, we obtain

x = 25

2x +2 = 2 x 25+2 = 52

Hence, the breadth and length of the pool are 25 m and 52 m respectively.
