Perimeter of rectangle swimming pool is 154 m.
Let length = l and breadth = b of the rectangle  then
Perimeter of the rectangle of the pool = 2( l + b)  = 154 m.
l + b = 77 ---------------(1)
Given that length is 2m more than twice its breadth.
l = 2b + 2
l - 2b = 2 ---------(2)
Solving (1) and (2) we get
l = 52 and b = 25
∴ The length of the pool  = 52 m and  breadth of the pool  = 25 m.
