    you have two arcs of radius 10

    each arc is measuring exactly 1/4th of circle (why ?)

    so you can calculate the perimeter of shaded region ?

    so.. if i get the arc measures.. i'll just add both then i can already have the perimeter?

    Do 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)

    my answer is.. P=900, is it correct?

    Seems wrong. \[\pi \] Is missing for sure.

    What is the perimeter of a circle with radius=r?

    Do 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?

    yep, perimeter's 62.83 approximately

    If 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?

    1/4 of the circle

    Correct, thus one arc has perimeter: \[\frac{ 1 }{ 4 } 2\pi r \]

    We need two arcs, so need to multiply the above equation by 2. \[2*\frac{ 1 }{ 4 } 2\pi r =\pi r\]

    Yes 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 \[10 \pi \]

    @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.
