I have had major difficulty with this word-problem that my teacher gave to us. the problem si a world problem that he said was used on an act, here it is
"For a project in home economics class, Kirk is making a tablecloth for a circular table 3 feet in diameter. The finished tablecloth is expected to hang down 5 inches over the edge all the way around. to finish off the edge of the table cloth, kirk will fold over and sew down 1 inch of the material all around the edge. kirk is going to use a single piece of rectangular material that is 60 inches wide. what is the shortest length of fabric, in inches, that kirk could use to make the tablecloth without putting any seperate pieces of fabric together?"
