Joe wants to keep together six tubes of 2 cm Diameter through an elastic band. He considered the two possibilities shown in the figures: Which of the following statements about the length of the elastic band is true? A The one on the left is π cm shorter. B The one on the left is 4 cm shorter. C The one on the right is π cm shorter. D The one on the right is 4 cm shorter. E both have the same length. I know that both have the same length, but I don't know how to calculate the length of the bands. How is it calculated? Last edited by skipjack; March 5th, 2017 at 09:40 AM.

$d = 2\, cm \implies r = 1 \, cm$ ...
