Given:
r=3.5ft
\(\displaystyle\angle={130}^{\circ}\)
First, find \(\displaystyle\theta\):
\(\displaystyle\theta=\angle\times{\left(\frac{\pi}{{180}^{\circ}}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle\theta=\frac{{{130}\pi}}{{180}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\frac{{{13}\pi}}{{18}}\)
Use the formula:
\(\displaystyle{s}={r}\theta\)
Where s represents the length of the piece of cloth moved. Substitute:
\(\displaystyle{s}={3.5}\times\frac{{{13}\pi}}{{18}}\)
\(\displaystyle{s}\approx{8}\) ft
