Hi mezmer, let me try to help you out on this.

I will explain how we can solve the question for part a) first.

By drawing these blue lines in the figure, we can see that the court has been cut into 3 identical squares. Each square will have a side that will be *u-metre *long.

There will be a total of 8*u *along the perimeter of the court. Since we are given that the perimeter of the court is 192 metres:

8*u* will be 192 metres.

so,

1*u *will be 24 metres.

We can see that the diameter of one circle, inclusive of the shaded ring, is also 24 metres.

**Therefore, AB is half of 24 metres, which is 12 metres.**

There will be a need for some step-by-step drawing on this diagram for a much better understanding on how to solve part b). I will be more than happy to share them with you if you are interested! I can provide in-depth explanation and solution for this question. Just let me know.

Hope this solution provided above helps!

Feel free to PM or text me (:
