**Writeacher**, Tuesday, May 15, 2012 at 3:06pmDo you realize that this -- ".50 cents" -- means half a cent?? Are you sure you want to compute your problem with half-cent tickets??

**PsyDAG**, Tuesday, May 15, 2012 at 3:07pmThose are awfully big cars to hold 60 people each.

Do you need to consider the turning the wheel takes as it is loading and unloading? In other words, in terms of loading, one car would be filled, the wheel would proceed 1/36 to the next car, etc…. Once loaded everyone would have two turns of the wheel. Then they have to unload in a similar way.

I hope this helps.
