does anyone know this?one blade of a fan is parallel to the floor. What degree of rotation of the fan puts the blade at the top of the fan?

• math -

It depends on which side the blade is on when it is parallel. If it just travels one-quarter of the way = 360º/4.

If it has to travel 3/4 of the way = (3/4) 360º
