How far does a rider travel in one turn of each Ferris wheel?
This is the first chart
Measure Ferris Wheel
Diameter (ft) 250
Height, including base 264
# of passenger cars 36
#of people per car 60
This is the second chart
Measure Cosmo Clock
Diameter (ft) 328
Height, including base 369
# of passenger cars 60
# of people per car 8

ignore extraneous information. All you need to know is the circumference of the wheel.
250ft wheel:
c = pi*d = 3.14*250 = 785 ft
328ft wheel:
c = 3.14*328 = 1030 ft
