The distance from Philadelphia to Sea Isle City is 100 mi. A car was driven this distance using tires with a radius of 14 in. How many revolutions of each tire occurred on the trip?

Statistics: The following table gives the free throws attempted (FTA) and the free throws made (FTM) for the top five players in the NBA for a recent season. Calculate the free throw percentage for each player by writing the FTM over the FTA and converting this fraction to a decimal

Player FTM FTA

Allan Houston 363 395

Ray Allen 316 345

Steve Nash 308 339

Troy Hudson 208 231

Reggie Miller 207 230

A frame

area = (1/2) base * height

cost = 3 times area

1 revolution = 2 pi r = 6.28 * 14 = 87.9 in

100 mi (5280 ft/mile)(12 in/ft) =6,336,000 in

so

6,336,000 in ( 1 rev/87.9 in) =72,082 rev

100 *(number made / total number of attempts)
