waecmaths question: 

A chord subtends an angle of 120o at the centre of a circle of radius 3.5cm. Find the perimeter of the minor sector containing the chord[Take $\pi =\tfrac{22}{7}$]

Option A: 

$14\tfrac{1}{3}cm$

Option B: 

$12\tfrac{5}{6}cm$

Option C: 

$8\tfrac{1}{7}cm$

Option D: 

$7\tfrac{1}{3}cm$

waecmaths solution: 

$\begin{align}  & Perimeter=\frac{\theta }{{{360}^{\circ }}}\times 2\pi r+2r \\ & Perimeter=\frac{{{120}^{\circ }}}{{{360}^{\circ }}}\times 2\times \frac{22}{7}\times 3.5+2(3.5) \\ & Perimeter=\frac{1}{3}\times 22+7=\frac{22}{3}+7=\frac{22+21}{3}=\frac{43}{3} \\ & Perimeter=14\frac{1}{3}cm \\\end{align}$
