Let the breadth be x
length=x+8
according to the question
area of the pool = l*b
105=x*x+8
if u solve this equation further u will get the answer

Best answer

length = w + 8 and  width = w and A = 105A = W* L105 =w(w + 8)105 = w² + 8w0 = w² + 8w - 1050 = (w + 15)(w -7)0 = w + 15   or 0 = w -7w = -15      or   w = 7width cant be negative, so w = 7  and L = 7 +8w = 7 and L = 157 * 15 = 105  check
