    I'm quite confused. i dont know now T.T arc length: l = 2(theta)(r)(theta/360) l = 2(90)(5)(90/360) l=225 225x4 = 900 perimeter is 900cm

    arc length : \(\large l = 2 (\theta)r \frac{\pi}{360}\) now try

    This is just a thought, but wouldn't the perimeter of the shaded region be equal to the circumference of a circle with a radius of 5 cm?

    Or, you can see that there are four quarter arcs of radius 5 which give u 1 complete perimeter of circle of radius 5

    my arc length is 7.85 so.. my perimeter of the shaded region is 31.42 approximately. is that right?

    both methods are considered complete solutions :) u wlc :) however ur teacher wud get more impressed if u do the lncognlto's method...

    @ganeshie8 , if this is the problem.. would the formula still be 2(theta)(r)(pi/360) or it should be 2(theta)(2)(pi/180)?

    Alright, here is the original formula :- arc length \(l = r\theta\) \(\theta\) is in radians

    to convert given \(\theta\) degrees into \(\theta\) radians, u multiply \(\frac{2\pi}{360}\) which is same as multiplying \(\frac{\pi}{180}\) :- arc length \(l = r \theta \frac{2\pi}{360}\) \(\theta\) is in degrees now

    for the triangle, did they give u any dimensions ?

    If this triangle is equilateral, then the angles of each of the sectors is going to be 60 degrees. Thus three sectors together make 180 degrees, or half a circle. So the perimeter of the shaded region would then be equal to half the circumference of a circle with the radius equaling half the length of a side of the triangle.

    60 + 60 + 60 and 180 which one save u time ha ? I'm sure ur teacher wants u do this exactly as lcognlto suggests !
