Homework Help: Math

Posted by Alicia on Saturday, November 3, 2007 at 12:28pm.

Natalie 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, Natalie will fold under and sew down 1 inch of the material all around the edge. Natalie is going to use a single piece of rectangular fabric that is 60 inches wide. What is the shortest length of fabric, in inches, Natalie can use to make the tablecloth without putting any separate pieces of fabric together?

I have no idea how to go about solving this problem. Thanks in advance.
