Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ218
The figure below is formed by 3 identical semi-circles. AB is a straight line of 46cm. Find the perimeter of the figure. Leave your answer in terms of π.
The length of AB = 46 cm
The sum of the diameters of the 3 identical semi-circles = 46 + 4 + 4 = 54 cm
The total length of the circumference of the three semi-circles = ½ × π × 54 = 27π cm
The perimeter of the figure = 27π + 46 – 4 – 4 = (36π – 38) cm
