A swimming pool is 23.5m long. If a boy swims 4 lengths how far is that altogether?

Area = L X B

Area = 94 cm square.

Is this is correct.

who cares what the area of the pool is?

One length is 23.5 m

he swims 4 lengths.

So, ...

especially if the dimensions are in meters, why give the area in cm^2 ?

You have given the perimeter of a square pool 23.5 cm on a side, yet expressed as an area.

Serious review is in order, I'd say.
