    The diameter of the inches of 18 is 169.56 is how far the car can travel after the tires turn once to the nearest inch because if you multiply 18 times 3 it will equal 54 and you have to multiply that by 3.14 times 54 it will equal 169.56 inches.

    Since the compact car tires are 18 inches in diameter I multiplied the diameter of the tires by the number of rotations so I multiplied 2,500 and 18 and got 45,000 inches and since there are 12 inches in a foot and it wants me to write my answer in feet so I divided 45,000 by 12 and I got the answer of 3,750 feet.

    the answer is 138ft because you have to divide 18 and 2500 to find out how much ft there is .

    5ft. which means its 56in so you transfer it to ft.the car travels 11,666ft.

    the car travels 56in. after one rotation because 18 * 3.14= 5ft. and the car travels 11,666ft. because 2500 * 56=11,666ft.

    the car travels 57 inches after one turn because 18 times 3.14 is 56.52 which you round. After 2500 rotations the car travels 11,775 ft because 56.52 x 2500=1441,300 which you divide by 12 which is 11,775

    If a car has 4 wheels and each wheel has a diameter of 18 inches, then you multiply 18 and 4. So in one turn, the car has traveled 72 inches. Then if you are turning 2500 times, multiply 2500 to 72. you get 15,000 feet in rotation.

    One rotation of the tires goes about 1 inch. So if the wheels rotated 2500 time then you would multiply 2500 by 1 and get 2500! The final answer is 2500 ft.

    you take 18 inches and multiply by 3.14 to get 57 inches. The tire would have rotated 141,300 inches.


  26. March 25th, 2015 at 7:41 pm      Reply Kevin Says:

    First I found the circumference for the tire by multiplying the diameter by pi (18×3.14=56.52).Then I rounded to the nearest inch and I got 57in.Then I multiplied 57×2,500=142,500.After that I have to turn it into feet for the answer into feet. So if there is 12 inches in a foot you divide 12/142,500=11,875. So therefore 11,875 is the answer in feet. 11,875ft :-]

    18in*3.14=56.52in

    5466*clears throat*
    if we want to find how far the car traveled in one turn, we have to find the circumference of the tire and the area and divide them.

    CIRCUMFERENCE:
    ~ First we have the diameter, 18.
    ~Then, we multiply that by the approximation of pi, 3.14.
    ~ You should get 56.52 inches as the answer.

    AREA:
    ~First, we find the radius by dividing the diameter by 2, which is 9.
    ~Then, we multiply 9 by 9 which is, 81.
    ~Next, we multiply 81 by the approximation of pi, which is 3.14.
    ~ Afterwards, the answer should be 254.34in.

    One turn of the tires should be adding the area and circumference.

    254.34
    / 81.00
    —————
    3.14

    ~ 3in is the nearest inch.
    ~One rotation of the tires is 3 inches
    ~ to find the rotation of 2500 rotations, multiply 3.
    ~

    2500
    * 3
    ——–
    7500

    ~2500 rotations is 7500 in.
    in feet, it is 625 feet.

    DOOOOOOOOOONNNNNEEEEE
    YAAAAAY
    at least i think that that that is how you solve it.

  33. March 26th, 2015 at 4:49 pm      Reply jiannav2014 Says:

    I’m going to pretend I know how to do this.

    So, first I found the approximate circumference of the tire by multiplying 18 by 3.14, the product I got was 56.52 inches. In one rotations, the car will travel 56.52 inches (4.71 feet). To find how far the car will travel in 2500 rotations, I multiplied 56.52 by 2500, which was 141300 inches. Because my unit needs to be feet and not inches, I divided that by 12 since there are 12 inches in 1 foot. 141300 divided by 12 is 11775. In 2500 rotations, the car will travel 11775 feet (3925 yards, about 2 miles).

    1) 56 1/2 inches because if u take 18 times 3.14 it equals 56 1/2.
    2) 141,250 inches (11,770 feet) because if you take 56 1/2 then times it by 2,500 then you get 141,250 inches then divide it by 12 and u get 11,770 feet.

    the car travels 56.5 inches per rotation. to get my answer I multiplied 18 by 3.14 as pi to get my circumference of 56.52. next I rounded my answer to 56.5 since the 2 rounds to zero.
    then, I got 141,250 inches as the second answer but I converted it to 11,770.83286 ft as my final answer. to get these answers I multiplied 2,500 by 56.5, then converted my answer.

    I solved the the problem by finding the circumference of the tire using the formula C=3.14 x d. I multiplied 3.14 by 18 and C= 56.25 in.

    if the tires on a compact car turned once to the nearest inch it would be 80 inches. i got this answer by multiplying 18 by 1 then rounding it to the nearest inch, after that i multiplied 20 by 4 to get 80 and i didn’t have to round it because it was already to the nearest inch. if the tires turned 25,000 times it would be 200,000. i got this answer by multiplying 2500 by 18 to get 4500 as the answer. so i rounded that to the nearest inch to get 50,000. after that i multiplied 50,000 by 4 to get 200,000.

    so i have looked at the question again and realized that i misunderstood. so my new answer is this. if the tires turned around once to the nearest inch it would be 80 inches. i got this answer by multiplying 18 by 1 then rounding to the nearest inch to get 20. when i got twenty i then multiplied twenty by four. to get my answer of 80 without having to round to the nearest inch because its already the nearest inch. if the car tires rotated 2500 times the answer would be 200,000. i got my answer by multiplying 2500 by 18 then rounding it to the nearest inch which would end up being 50000. after i got that answer i multiplied 50,000 by four to get the answer of 20,000. and once again i did not need to round to the nearest inch, because it was already like that. and those are my final answers 🙂

    if you multiply the tires diameter (12in) by the rotations of the wheel (2,500) you would get 45,000in. since there is 12 inches in a foot I multiplied 12 by 45,000 I got 3,750ft as the answer.

    1) Since the tires are 18 inches/1.8, and divide that with 2500 you will get 1.8 inches.

    2)iT WOULD BE 3,750, BECAUSE IF YOU DIVIDE IT BY 12/12 FEET, YOULL GET 3750
