Please Solve this 4 EPIC Problems.... i couldn't solve it myself

Please Solve this 4 EPIC Problems.... i couldn't solve it myself
1.) Find the area of the rectangle
2.) Find the cost of roadway
3.) Find the perimeter of the rectangle
4.) Find the distance from 200m to the center and 200m along the circle. when the circle has radius of 600m.

The problem seems easy at first glance, but it's actually hard when you try to solve it. I'll salute you if you can solve one of them. I can't even solve it myself

I don't know the solution how to get 651500.. please help.. Last edited by skipjack; November 2nd, 2014 at 05:17 AM.

Please show your solution. @Benit13:how did you get 200 cm^2? Yes, 200cm^2 is one of the choices. It might be correct. Please show your solution. @skeeter:I think it's correct. How did you get d=200(13-12cos(1/3))^0.5?? Thanks for everyone who helped ^^ Last edited by skipjack; November 2nd, 2014 at 06:01 AM.

Using similar triangles and Pythagoras, I came up with the equation ...$\displaystyle \frac{10}{\sqrt{x^2-100}}=\frac{30}{40-x}\$ Solved for x, but still got a cost less than what you say is the correct solution. Sorry.
