Help on this question:

The second hand on the clock pictured below is 6 cm long. How far in centimeters does the tip of this second hand travel during a period of 30 minutes? Express your answer in terms of pi.

Can you determine the circumference of the clock?

hi dazzle1230

The second hand is the radius and it sweeps out circles as time passes. So firstly work out the circumference of that circle (2 times pi times radius) then work out how many circuits it will do in that time . One per minute. Don't use 3.14 or other for pi ... just leave the answer a N.pi where N is a number.

MathWA: I don't see the picture either, but, do you really need it for this question?
