For a project, 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 the way around. To finish the tablecloth, Kirk will fold under and sew 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?

The DIAMETER of the circular peice of cloth will have to be

3 ft = 36 inches

+  5 inches of overhang x 2

+ 1 inch of hem x 2

= 36 + 10 + 2 = 48 inches = minimum length of 60" wide cloth
