Best answer

Answer : 11

1/2*r*11 + 1/2*r*13 = [s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)]^1/2

where s = (a+b+c)/2 = 22

1/2*r*24 = [22*2*11*9]^1/2 = 66
r = 66/12 = 11/2
Diameter = 11

A semicircle with radius a is inscribed in a rectangle with its diameter along one side of the rectangle. A circle with radius b is then inscribed so it is tangent to the rectangle and the semicircle, as shown.
Solve for the value of a/b.
