# Length of rope tied around three equal circles touching each other

Given **r** is the radius of three equal circles touching each other. The task is to find the length of the rope tied around the circles as shown below:

**Examples:**

Input:r = 7Output:86

Input:r = 14Output:172

**Approach:** As it can be clearly seen from above image, the part of the length of rope which is not touching the circle is **2r + 2r + 2r = 6r**.

The part of the rope which is touching the circles make a sector of 120 degrees on each circle. Thus, three sectors of 120 degrees each can be considered as a complete one circle of 360 degrees.

Therefore, Length of rope touching the circle is **2 * PI * r** where **PI = 22 / 7** and **r** is the radius of the circle.

Hence, the total length of the rope will be **( 2 * PI * r ) + 6r**.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C#

`// C# code to find the length` `// of rope` `using` `System;` `class` `GFG {` ` ` `static` `double` `PI = 3.14159265;` ` ` `// Function to find the length` ` ` `// of rope` ` ` `public` `static` `double` `length_rope(` `double` `r)` ` ` `{` ` ` `return` `((2 * PI * r) + 6 * r);` ` ` `}` ` ` `// Driver code` ` ` `public` `static` `void` `Main()` ` ` `{` ` ` `double` `r = 7.0;` ` ` `Console.Write(length_rope(r));` ` ` `}` `}` |

## PHP

`<?php` `// PHP program to find the` `// length of rope` `$PI` `= 3.14159265;` `// Function to find the length` `// of rope` `function` `length_rope( ` `$r` `)` `{` ` ` `global` `$PI` `;` ` ` `return` `( ( 2 * ` `$PI` `* ` `$r` `) + 6 * ` `$r` `);` `}` `// Driver code` `$r` `=7;` `echo` `(length_rope( ` `$r` `));` `?>` |

## Javascript

`<script>` `// Javascript program to find the length` `// of rope` `const PI = 3.14159265;` `// Function to find the length` `// of rope` `function` `length_rope(r)` `{` ` ` `return` `((2 * PI * r) + 6 * r);` `}` `// Driver code` `let r = 7;` `document.write(Math.ceil(length_rope(r)));` `// This code is contributed by souravmahato348` `</script>` |
