A semi-circular window of radius r cm is divided into sectors, each of area 125 cm²
Show that the perimeter of each sector is: .P .= .2(r + 125/r)
The perimeter is: .P .= .2r + s, where s is the arclength.
Since arclength is given by: .s .= .rθ, where θ is the central angle,
. . we have: .P .= .2r + rθ .
The area of a sector is given by: .A .= .½r²θ
So we have: .½r²θ .= .125 . → . θ = 250/r² .
Substitute  into : .P .= .2r + r(250/r²) .= .2r + 250/r
Therefore: .P .= .2(r + 125/r)
