As we can see the left bottom corner of the triangle becomes a 30º-60º-90º triangle where the hypotenuse of the triangle is same as Radius i.e. 4

i.e. Half of the side of the equilateral triangle is the side opposite to 60º in 30º-60º-90º triangle

hence Half of the side of equilateral triangle = 2√3

i.e. Side of the Equilateral triangle = 4√3

ie. Perimeter of the triangle = 3*4√3 = 12√3

If we draw a perpendicular from the centre to all the side and also join all the vertices to the centre we will get 6 right angled triangle which is 30-90-60

and side opp 60 degree=\sqrt{3}/2 *hypotenuse=2\sqrt{3}

hence one side is 4\sqrt{3} and perimeter 3* 4\sqrt{3}=12\sqrt{3}

Radius of circumscribed circle of an equilateral triangle is, R= (A/√3), where A is length of a side of equilateral triangle and R is radius of circumscribed circle.
Here, 4= (A/√3), A= 4√3, perimeter= 12√3. Answer is Option D.

Radii of circle outscribed of equilateral triangle: R={ a*sqrt(3) } / 3. Hence, a = R*sqrt(3) ; Perimetr = 3*R*sqrt(3) =3*4*sqrt(3)=12*sqrt(3)
