(A) 210π

(B) 210π + 280
(C) 280π

(D) 280π + 80
(E) 280π + 280

the answer is D.

160pi*3/4 +120pi*3/4 + 2*80+2*60= 210pi+280

another B
basically 3/4 of the circumference of each circle + 2*radius of each circle

= 120pi + 90pi + 160 + 120
= 210pi + 280

your drawing is horrible :(

haha...

just kidding..but if you could draw it again more acurately then it would be great!

however I will go with B

120pi+160+90pi+120=210pi+280

3/4*(2*pi*R + 2*pi*r) + 2*(R + r) -> B

important thing where i got stuck...
i found this on another site..its really help full.



I feel we are not supposed to take the literal meaning of the term "cord" {lineseg that lies inside the cirlce with its ends lieing on the circle"} [color=#FF4040]as its meaning but as a piece of wire/some material that goes around the 2 circles[/color].

so.........
The answer is (B).

Since the tangents form squares with the radii.

the total length as tangents = 2*80+2*60 = 280

and the total lenght wound around the circles = 270deg/360deg * 2*pi*80
=120pi

for the second circle similarly 90pi
therfore 210pi+280
