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
