B

Let d be the diameter of the semicircle.
We have 7d=28.
Hence d=4

Radius =2

let us take the 2 equal sides to be = x .
let us take the unequal side = y=diameter of the circle(from the figure)
given : perimeter=28.
i.e 2x+y=28.......(i)
from the figure and given information,
3y=x...........(ii)

substituting equation (ii) in equation (i).


7y=28. this is implies that y=4
radius=2.

We see that the perimeter of the triangle is equivalent to 7 diameters; thus, each diameter must be equal to 4, so the radius of any one of the circles is 2.

Answer: B
