Let's find the total diameter of the circular tablecloth d= 3ft+ 5in x 2+1in x 2=3 x 12 in+10in + 2in= 48 in. So, the min length is 48 in or 4 ft
For a project in Home Economics class, Kirk is
making a tablecloth for a circular table 3 feet in
diameter. The finished tablecloth needs to hang down
5 inches over the edge of the table all the way around.
To finish the edge of the tablecloth, Kirk will fold
under and sew down 1 inch of the material all around
the edge. Kirk is going to use a single piece of rectangular
fabric that is 60 inches wide. What is the shortest
length of fabric, in inches, Kirk could use to make the
tablecloth without putting any separate pieces of fabric
together?
Please show me step by step!
