circumference = 2(3.3)π = 6.6π inches

Two interpretations for "how far does the tip ... move"

distance relative to its original position, it would be in the same place where it was 40 minutes ago

= (40/60)(6.6π) = (2/3)(6.6π) = 4.4π inches along the arc length

If you mean , one rotation + 2/3 of another (from 100 minutes)

distance = (5/3)(6.6π) = 11π inches
