PR=$$2*\sqrt{2}$$
Perimeter = $$4*\sqrt{2}+4$$

right angle triangle 90-45-45 ratio of sides 1:1:rt2

so side of equilateral traingle = 2 rt 2

perimited = 2+ 2 + 2rt2 + 2rt2

4rt2 + 4
(B) imo

Looks scary if you're inclined to hate geometry like myself, but quite simple when you remember rules and take good notes.

$$x^2+x^2=PR^2$$, so $$2^2+2^2=8$$

From there, we know that $$PR=\sqrt{8}$$. That can be simplified to $$2\sqrt{2}$$.

Since all angles of triangle PRS = 60, we know that we have an equilateral triangle and all sides are a the same. We're looking for the perimeter of the whole quadrilateral, so side RS and SP will contribute to it. Those are both equal to PR, so we'll take 2 of those, or $$2*2\sqrt{2}$$, or more simply, $$4\sqrt{2}$$.

We're given that $$x=2$$, and 2 of those contribute to the perimeter, so the final perimeter will be $$4+4\sqrt{2}$$.

Answer choice B.

Answer must be B as x=2 and triangle QRS is isosceles then 3rd side is 2root 2 so perimeter is sum of all the side 2 sides with 2root 2 and 2 sides with 2 length so total is 4root2+ 4

Since triangle PQR is an isosceles right triangle, side PR = 2√2. Since triangle PRS is an equilateral triangle, PR = RS = PS = 2√2.

So the perimeter of quadrilateral PQRS is 2 + 2 + 2√2 + 2√2 = 4 + 4√2.

Answer: B
