    assuming that the limits are the perimeter of this park: |dw:1436148213050:dw| and for the left and right \[L=\theta*R\] theta is in rad \[\frac{ 120 \pi }{ 180 } = \frac{ 2 \pi }{ 3 }\] \[L= \frac{ 2 \pi }{ 3 }*50=104.7\] calculating the perimeter: \[2*50+2*104.7=309.4\] I think that the answer is 309

    @baad1994 You are correct. You can also use the formula \(s = \dfrac{x}{360^o} \times 2 \pi r\) for the length of an arc and avoid having to convert to radians. \(P = 2 \times \left( \dfrac{120}{360}\times 2 \pi \times 50 ~yd \right) + 2 \times 50~yd = 309 ~yd\)
