**Steve**, Monday, December 16, 2013 at 6:05pmThe pentagon has 5 rings, or corridors. You would need to know the spacing between the corridors to figure how much of the 17.5 miles relates to the outermost corridor, and then assume that the perimeter of the pentagon is the same as the length of the outermost corridor.

And that doesn't even count the corridors connecting the rings at various places.

This problem is poorly worded, since there is so much unstated.
