This question doesn't even require physics...it's purely mathematical: First, calculate the circumference of the circle. Then multiply that by 5 since it makes 5 revolutions per second. That will give you how far the dot traveled in 1 second. Then just multiply that times how many seconds are in 40 minutes.

\(\omega=\frac{ \theta }{ t }\) is ok. You should just be careful to plug in the values in the right units.

What the question asks is the DISTANCE travelled, not the angle swept during that time.

Distance in rotation is nothing but the angle right?

No, distance is distance (in metres), and angle is angle (in radians).
