Hi there,
distance traveled by the hands =circumference of the circle.
 circumference of the circle produced byshort hand=2πr=2*3.14*4=25.12cm
circumference of the circle produced by long hand=2πR=2*3.14*6=37.68cm
therefore the sum=25.12+37.68=62.8cm
i hope this helps u nd pls smash the thanks button
