Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so.. if i get the arc measures.. i'll just add both then i can already have the perimeter?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know what is the perimeter of a full circle? If you do you can find the shaded one. As that is twice the quarter of a circle. Thus 2*1/4=1/2 The perimeter is half of the full circle. (with radius=10)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Seems wrong. \[\pi \] Is missing for sure.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is the perimeter of a circle with radius=r?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do not try to jump steps. One at a time, otherwise you will make too many mistakes. So we will start with a circle of any radius=r. This circle has perimeter: \[P=2\pi r \] Is this clear?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep, perimeter's 62.83 approximately

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If r=10 as in this question. Now next step, first look at one arc of the graph. (half the perimeter asked) What fraction is this arc of the full circle?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct, thus one arc has perimeter: \[\frac{ 1 }{ 4 } 2\pi r \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We need two arcs, so need to multiply the above equation by 2. \[2*\frac{ 1 }{ 4 } 2\pi r =\pi r\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.015.71.. so.. 31.42 :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes but I am 100% confident that your maths teacher will not like the solution written as 31.42, as it is not precise. The solution is \[10 \pi \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Andras Don't be so sure. Often times in courses like this the teacher prefers that you assume pi=3.14, which is probably exactly what his teacher expects since he's already doing it this way.
