Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2arc length : \(\large l = 2 (\theta)r \frac{\pi}{360}\) now try

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Or, you can see that there are four quarter arcs of radius 5 which give u 1 complete perimeter of circle of radius 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my arc length is 7.85 so.. my perimeter of the shaded region is 31.42 approximately. is that right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2both methods are considered complete solutions :) u wlc :) however ur teacher wud get more impressed if u do the lncognlto's method...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@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)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Alright, here is the original formula : arc length \(l = r\theta\) \(\theta\) is in radians

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2to 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.260 + 60 + 60 and 180 which one save u time ha ? I'm sure ur teacher wants u do this exactly as lcognlto suggests !
