  1. The circumference is not 5 feet.

    C = pi * d

  3. C = 7.85

    Then divide 5280 by 7.85
    = 672.6

  4. C = pi x d
    C=3.14 x 2.5
    C = 7.85

    Then divide 5280 by 7.85
    = 672.6 revolutions in one mile

  9. A. YOU need to multiply 3.14 by 2.5
    it equals 1.14 x 2.5
    that equals 7.85
    u have to round it so the final answer is 8

  11. HERE'S HELP
    1 mile = 5,280 feet
    1 rotation is 7.85
    5,280/7.85 = 672.611465

    A. circumference is: 7.85 inches
    B. it will rotate: 672 times
    This is where you need to be.....

    2.5 diameter times pi
    gets you to 7.85 ft that is one rotation distance.
    One miles is 5280 feet
    you divide now your 7.85 into the 5280 and see how many times the tire will rotate .. the answer is that 672.611 number but the answer is 672
    it will rotate 672 times to get a mile down the road because the circle is taking up seven inches to make a full rotation. get it? you're welcome!

  12. The circumference is the line from the center of the circle to the edge of the circle, so if the hight of the circle is 2.5, we would have to divide it by 2 to get half the circle.

    C = pi x d

    C = 7.85

    Then divide 5280 by 7.85

  20. I believe what they are saying is that the circumference of a circle is equal to 3.14 times the diameter. In this specific problem the diameter is 2.5.
    The circumference is equal to 3.14 times the diameter 2.5 which makes 7.85 your circumference.
    Divide the number of feet traveled in one mile (5,280) by your circumference (7.85) so you now get your final answer 672. The tire will rotate 672 times per mile.
    Hope this helps!

  28. A- The circumference of the tire is about 7.85 feet

    B- The tire will rotate about 672 times to travel 1 mile

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The formula of the circumference of a circle is C = π d, where d is the diameter of the circle
    If a circle rotates for n turns and make a distance S, then n =
    ∵ The diameter of a tire is 2.5 ft

    ∴ d = 2.5 ft

    ∵ C = π d, where C is the circumference of tire

    ∴ C = π(2.5) = 7.85398 ft

    ∴ C ≅ 7.85 feet

    A- The circumference of the tire is about 7.85 feet

    ∵ The tire have to travel 1 mile

    ∵ 1 mile = 5280 feet

    ∴ S = 5280 feet

    - To find the number of rotation of the tire divide S by C

    ∵ n =

    ∴ n = ≅ 672 revolution

    B- The tire will rotate about 672 times to travel 1 mile

People who take there time trying to help is just wasting there time but is very much appreciated by some. ALL I'M SAYING IS PLS PUT YOUR OWN EFFORT IN SOMETIMES.
