hi

to find the radius
length of arc RST = \(\frac{60}{360} * perimeter= \frac{2*pi*r}{6}=18*pi......r=54..\)
triangle is EQUILATERAL triangle as two sides are radius so RT = radius = 54

perimeter = 18*pi +54

D

Length of the arc RST (which subtends \(60^{\circ}\)\(\) at the center) = 2\(\pi\)rX\(\frac{60}{360}\), where r is the radius
of the circle. Thus, we have:
2\(\pi\)rX\(\frac{60}{360}\) = 2\(\pi\)r
=> r = 54

In triangle TOR, we have: RO = TO = radius of the circle

Hence, we have:
\(\angle\)\(\)OTR = \(\angle\)\(\)ORT = \(\frac{180^{\circ}-60^{\circ}}{2}\) = \(60^{\circ}\)

Thus, triangle TOR is equilateral.
Thus, we have: RT = TO = RO = radius of the circle = 54.
Thus, perimeter of the region RSTU = (18\(\pi\)+54).
The correct answer is option D.

how did u arrive that 2 angles would be equal??

The sector is a fraction of the circle; the sector's central angle is a fraction of the circle's 360°.

Use that fraction, and the given arc length, to find circumference. Circumference yields radius, which we need for the sides of the triangle.

Sector as fraction of circle
\(\frac{Part}{Whole}=\frac{60}{360}=\frac{1}{6}\)

The sector is 1/6 of the circle. Its arc length is 1/6 of circumference.

Radius: Length of arc RST = 1/6 circumference
\(18π = 2πr * \frac{1}{6}\)
\(54πr = πr\)
, so \(r = 54\)

Triangle side lengths
Angles opposite equal sides are equal.
Sides OR and OT are radii: OR = OT
Triangle vertices at R and at T are angles opposite those equal sides.
So triangle vertex ∠R = vertex ∠T

One angle, at vertex O, is 60°
Let the other two equal angles = x
(2x + 60 = 180) --> (2x = 120)
x = 60
The triangle is equilateral (60°-60°-60°).
Two sides each = length of radius = 54
Third side, RT, must = 54

Perimeter of region RSTU
Arc RST + ∆ side RT
18π + 54
