Hello there,

This is my first post in this forum and im so excited!

I have got this question as my homework ,but i couldn't understand what exactly been asked in this question.the question says :

A right angled isosceles triangle ( with two equal sides ) is cut from each corner of a rectangular field whose width is 40m and length is 60 m. A semi circular plot whose diameter coincides with the hypotenuse of the cut triangle is added to each corner . Thus the field finally composed of two parts: A which is an octagonal ( 8 sided polygon) part and B consisting of four semicircular parts.

Obtain expressions for the area and circumference of the field in terms of x , the length of the leg of the cut triangle and find the domain of each expression.

It's a bit confusing (at least to me!).

just a few tips to clarify the question.

Any help is appreciated

Worm Regards,
