The circumference of the tire is pi*27 which also has 10 rotations giving the distance traveled 27pi * 10= 270 pi inches traveled.

 

Hope it helps!

The circumference is 2 * radius * pi or diameter * pi. Since the diameter is twice the radius, there is no need to convert the diameter to the radius.
