a) how far does the unicycle move if the wheel turns once?

give your answer in metres, correct to 2 decimal places

b) pierre enters a 100m unicycle race. how many times must the wheel rotate completely in order for pierre to travel 11m?

give your answer to the nearest whole number

Circumference of circle = pi * d

= pi 80 = 251.33 cm

B. 11~~ m ~~ x (100~~ cm/m~~) / (251.33 ~~cm~~ / rotation) = 4.38 rotations ~~ 4 rotations

The first one is not wrong....you just didn't read my answer and finish the work 251.33 cm ** IS** 2.5133 m Don't be lazy !!!

The second one is correct too.....perhaps you did not enter the question correctly...??

how many times must the wheel rotate completely in order for pierre to travel **11m? Maybe you meant 100 m not 11 m ?**
