The radius of both the circles is equal and is 5 . Hence, the total perimeter is equal to 2πR+2R.
Hence the perimeter is equal to 10πr+10.

Because semicircle PR is centered at Q, its radius = QR = PQ (given) = 5. Because semicircle QS is centered at R, its radius, too, is QR = 5.

Perimeter:

Segment PQ = 5
Segment RS = 5

Arc PR = \(\frac{2πr}{2}=\frac{10π}{2}= 5π\)

Arc QS = \(\frac{2πr}{2}=\frac{10π}{2}= 5π\)

Total: 10 + 10π

Answer C

we have r = 5 for each circle
perimeter of half circle = Pi * r

so perimeter of the shaded region = perimeter of both half circles + r1 + r2 = 2*5*pi + 5 + 5 = 10pi + 10

We see that the radii of both semicircles is 5.

Thus, the semicircular arc of each semicircle (half circumference) is 1/2 x 2π(5) = 5π. We also see that PQ = RS = 5. Thus the perimeter of the shaded region is:

5π + 5π + 5 + 5 = 10π + 10

Answer: C
