    Answer:

    308.4miles

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given that radius of earth= 4000miles

    Change in latitude = 39° 8′ 46″ – 34° 43’41”

    = 4° 25′ 5″

    = 4+25/60+5/3600

    4+0.4166+0.00138

    θ = 4.417°

    Converting to radian = 4.417°×π÷180

    = 4.417×0.0174

    = 0.07710

    Distance between the cities = rθ

    S = 4000×0.07710

    S= 308.4miles
