Once around a circle is equal to 2pi radians.

Since you want only 5/4pi, the portion of the circumference of the circle that you want is (5/4pi)/(2pi) which, when reduced is 5/8.

The circumference of a circle is found by:  C  =  2·pi·r

So the full circumference of the circle is:     C  =  2·pi·34  =  68·pi

Since you want only 5/8ths of the circumference, your answer is (5/8)·68·pi.

Now, use a calculator to find your answer.
