Question

The diameter of a bicycle wheel is 42cm. If the wheel makes 16 complete revolution, what will be the total distance covered by the wheel? [Take $$\pi \frac{22}{7}$$

A) 672cm

B) 1056cm

C) 2112cm

D) 4224cm

Explanation:

d = 42cm

Circumference = $$\pi d = \frac{22}{7} \times 42cm$$

= 22 x 6cm = 132cm

Total distance covered = circumference x number of revolutions

= 132cm x 16 = 2112cm

Dicussion (1)

• d = 42cm

Circumference = $$\pi d = \frac{22}{7} \times 42cm$$

= 22 x 6cm = 132cm

Total distance covered = circumference x number of revolutions

= 132cm x 16 = 2112cm
