##### Method of solving this CAT Question from Mensuration

Given that ABCD be the rectangle of area of 768 sq cm. A semicircular part with diameter AB and area 72π sq cm is removed
From the area given we can find the radius r as
$$frac{πr^2}{2}$ = 72π r2 = 144 r = 12 cm The diameter AB is 24 since r = 12 So we have a rectangle ABCD AB × BC = 768 24 × BC = 768 BC = $\frac{768}{24}$ BC = 32 Now we have to find the perimeter of the left over portion$shaded area)
Perimeter = AD + DC + BC + $$frac{1}{2}$ perimeter of the circle Perimeter = 32 + 24 + 32 + $\frac{2πr}{2}$$r = 12 cm)
Perimeter = 88 + 12π cm
The perimeter of the leftover portion, in cm, is 88 + 12π

The question is "From a rectangle ABCD of area 768 sq cm, a semicircular part with diameter AB and area 72π sq cm is removed. The perimeter of the leftover portion, in cm, is"

##### Hence, the answer is 88 + 12π cm

Choice A is the correct answer.
