The length and breadth of the pool are 52 m and 25 m. Given that the perimeter of the rectangular swimming pool=154m:

Now assume that the breadth be=x

Then, according to the question the length=2x+2m

We know that:

Perimeter=2(l+b)

Substituting the values we get:

154=2(2x+2+x)

On multiplying by 2:

154=4x+4+2x

154=4x+2x+4

154=6x+4

On simplifying we get:

154-4=6x

150=6x

25=x

Length=2x+2m

Substituting the values of x we get:

=2 × x+2m

=2×25+2m

=50+2m

=52m

### Properties of Rectangle

• A quadrilateral is a rectangle.
• Each inner angle is equal to 90 degrees and the opposite sides are parallel and equal to one another.
• 360 degrees is the total of all interior angles.
• The diagonals cut each other in half, and both of them are equal in length.
• The perimeter of a rectangle with side lengths a and b is equal to 2a+2b units.
• The area of a rectangle with sides that are a and b is given by: ab sin 90 = ab square units.
• The diameter of a rectangle’s circumcircle is given by its diagonal.
• At various angles, the diagonals cut each other in half. One is an obtuse angle, the other an acute angle.
• The rectangle is referred to as a square if the two diagonals intersect at right angles.

Summary:

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

The perimeter of a rectangular swimming pool is 154m. Its length is 2m more than twice its breadth. The length and breadth of the pool are 52 m and 25 m.
