The length is 73 m, and the width is 59 m.

Step-by-step explanation:

perimeter = 2 * length + 2 * width

Let the width = w

length = w + 14

width = w

perimeter = 2 * (w + 14) + 2 * w

perimeter = 2w + 28 + 2w

perimeter = 4w + 28

perimeter = 264

4w + 28 = 264

4w = 236

w = 59

length = w + 14 = 59 + 14 = 73

The length is 73 m, and the width is 59 m.
