Hi all, i'm a little stuck on this question: Does the perimeter = 3h + πr? Area of the window = h^2 + ( πr^2 / 2)?

Originally Posted by running-gag No The length of the bottom is 2r and not h The perimeter is 2r + 2h + πr The area is πr²/2 + rh how do i go about rearranging the equations to find r and h? given that the perimeter has to equal 12meters.

its called a norman window!!! Thank you!
Could someone tell me if i simplified this correctly? A =1/2πr^2+2r((12-2r-πr)/2) I got: A=12r-(2+π/2) r^2
