A)8
B)4
C)2
D)1/2
E)1/4

  • math -

    Diameter big wheel = D
    diameter little wheel = D/2
    In one revolution, the back wheel goes forward pi D
    meanwhile the forward wheel also has to go forward pi D, which is 2 pi (D/2)
    so the little wheel makes two revolutions for each of thew big wheel
