Your bicycle spoke has a measurement of 10 inches. How many revolutions will your wheel need to turn to travel 240 feet? Please explain your answer with work.

 

Thank You as always!

radius of wheel = 10 inches

 

circumference of wheel = 2π * 10 = 20π inches

 

How many 20π inches are in 240 * 12 = 2880 inches?

 

2880/(20π) = 144π

 

The wheel will make 144π revolutions, or about 452.389 revolutions, in 240 feet. :)
