The short and long hands of a clock are 4cm and 6cm long respectively. What will be the sum of distances travelled by their tips in 4 days ? ( π = 3.14)
A. 954.56 cm
B. 3818.24 cm
C. 2909.12 cm
D. 2703.56 cm
in my calculation I get following:
long is 6 and there is 24h per day so we have in 4 days, 4x24 x 2rπ= 1152π
short is 4 so we have 4x2rπx2=96π
1152π+96π=1216π and 1216x3.14=3818.24 cm
You are right. But I would suggest you to elaborate your explanation in detail ( for the short hand ) so that others may understand your explanation.
You are right...there is a trick there with short hand...but I will explain both calculations...
Long shows us minutes and there are 60 minutes per h so long one will create full circle in 1h and there is 24h
so we have in 4 days, 4x24 x 2rπ= 1152π
Short hand shows us hours and there are 24h per day but only 12 on analog clock showed so in one day we have 2 full circles so we have in 4 days, 4x 2rπ x2=96π
Al together 1152π+96π=1216π and 1216x3.14=3818.24 cm
