math/ CIRCUMFERENCE of a circle

posted by .

A person has a measuring wheel that records the distance the wheel is rolled along the ground. The circumference of the wheel is one yard. If the wheel is pushed half a mile, how many times will the wheel go around (1mi=5280 ft)?

  • math/ CIRCUMFERENCE of a circle -

    - find out how many feet are in 1 yard
