Not what you're looking for?

In my latest battle with squirrels, I have strategically hung my bird feeder so that a squirrel cannot steal my birdseed. I attach string to a branch 15 feet off the ground and 3 feet from the trunk. If I attach the other end to a circular spool of radius 1 foot that 3 feet off of the ground and 10 feet away from the base of the tree. Determine how much string I need if I want to be able to raise and lower the feeder from the branch to the ground. How many times must I crank the wheel to raise the feeder from the ground to the top of the branch?
