its hard to picture it but theres a circle in the middle with the other two circles touching at exactly the middle of the center circle...there is a trapeziod formed with points where 1. circle A intersects circle B at the top 2. circle B intersects circle C at the top (that formes a horizontal line)

the base of the trapezoid is the diameter of circle B... the two lines are connected by two diagonal lines to form a trapezoid...what is the perimeter of the trapezoid
