The minute hand of a clock is 8 inches long. To the nearest tenth of an inch, how far does the tip of the minute hand travel as the time progresses from 12:00 to 12:25?

The hand travels 25 min /60 min of a full circle (360 degrees)

 

25/60 x 360 = 150 degrees

 

pi * d    is the circumference of this circle   and d = 2r = 2 x 8 inches = 16 inches

      and the hand travels 150 out of 360

 

pi * 16  *  150/360   inches      You can take it from here !  cheeky
