Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The street is 156m Long

We use the concept of circumference in this case whereby one successful turn is equal to 156/39

Circumference is given by Pi multiplied by the diameter.

letter the Diameter be x

Therefore the one turn = 3.14 * x

Thirty nine times of the above distance give us 156m

Therefore we can say

3.14x * 39 =156

122.46x = 156

x=156/122.6

x= 1.273885

Round of to the nearest tenth gives

x=1.3

The diameter is 1.3m
