the circumference of a round tablecloth is 160 inches.Will the tablecloth cover the top of a table with diameter of 52? explain

As the basis for this question, we need to determine if the circumference of the tablecloth is greater than that of the table.

The first step will be to determine the circumference of the table.

C = 2pi*r = pi*d

Ctable = 3.14 * 52 = 163.28

Since the circumfrence of the table exceeds the circumfrence of the table cloth, the table cloth will not be able to cover the entire table.

You could also solve this by calculating the diameter of the table cloth.

dcloth = 160 / 3.14 = 51

This also shows that the table cloth will not cover the entire table.
