the maximun height of a ferris wheel is 35m. the wheel takes 2 mins to make one revolution. passengers board the ferris wheel 2m above the ground at the bottom of the rotation.

a. write an equation to model this
b. how high is the passengers after 45s
c. draw a graph

  • math -

    The diameter = 35-2 = 33

    In 45 seconds, the passenger has traveled 45/120 of its circumference.

    I hope this gives you a start.
