  1. You know that the diameter of the circle is 20 m, and the two ends of the field make the full circle. The perimeter of a circle is given by the equation (pi)x(diameter)
    So total perimeter =
    = circle + the two long sides of the field
    = (3.14159265)x 20 + 40m +40m
    =

  2. The vertical distance across the semi-circle = Dia./2 = 20/2 = 10 m.,
    The width of the rectangle = 20 m.,
    The length of the rectangle = 40-10 = 30 m.,

    A = pi*r^2/2 + L*W = (3.14*10^2/2) + 30*20 = 757 m^2.
    P = Pi*Dia./2 + 2L + W = (3.14*20/2) + 2*30 + 20 = 111.4 m.
