Area = L X B

Area = 94 cm square.

1. who cares what the area of the pool is?

One length is 23.5 m
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.
