Accepted Solution

Answer:2449.2 inchesStep-by-step explanation:The distance the bicycle wheel covers in one revolution is equal the the circumference of the bicycle wheel which is given by;[tex]C=2\pi r[/tex]We substitute r=13 inches, which is the radius of the wheel [tex]\pi=3.14[/tex] into the formula to get;[tex]C=2(3.14)(13)[/tex][tex]\Rightarrow C=81.64[/tex]After 30 revolutions, the bicycle will cover;[tex]81.64\times 30=2449.2in[/tex]
