    Subject of the formula

    Make r the subject

    P=\pi r+2r+2a

    I could only get

    \frac{P-2a}{\pi}=r+\frac{2r}{\pi}

    Take 2a as normal.

    \pi r + 2r = P-2a

    You can then factor out an r on the LHS

    r(\pi+2) = P-2a

    Can you find r now?

    r=\frac{P-2a}{\pi +2}?

    Indeed. \pi +2 is a constant so the domain is all the real numbers but you don't need to know that for this question
