Julie and her brother go to atlanta to ride the skyview ferris wheel. it measures 200 feet in diameter.
a)i want to know the distance around the ferris wheel. would i use circumference or area?

b)what is the formula needed to solve this problem? look in your notes!

c)what is the distance traveled in one rotation? explain how you used the formula to solve the problem.

Answers

Circumference. the equation is:
circumference = 3.14 • the diameter of the circle. the diameter of a circle is 2 • the radius.

use circumfrence, look in your notes for the formula as the queastion states

Step-by-step explanation:

Part A) Circumference

Part B) C=\pi D

Part C) The distance traveled in one rotation is 628.32 feet

Step-by-step explanation:

Part A) we know that

The distance around the circle is equal to the circumference.

The Ferris Wheel have a circular shape

so

To find out the distance around the Ferris Wheel you should use the circumference

Part B) What is the formula needed to solve this problem?

we know that

The circumference is equal to multiply the number π by the diameter of the circle

so

C=\pi D

Part C) What is the distance traveled in one rotation?

we know that

One rotation subtends a central angle of 360 degrees

The distance traveled in one rotation is the same that the circumference of the Ferris wheel

we have

D=200\ ft ----> diameter of the Ferris wheel

substitute in the formula of circumference

C=\pi (200)\\C=200\pi\ ft

assume

\pi=3.1416

C=200(3.1416)=628.32\ ft

therefore

The distance traveled in one rotation is 628.32 feet

Part A) Circumference

Part B) C=π D

Part C) The distance traveled in one rotation is 628.32 feet

\pi=3.1416\\C=200(3.1416)=628.32\ ft

therefore

The distance traveled in one rotation is 628.32 feet

a) Circumference of Ferris wheel.

b) \text{Circumference} = \pi d

c) 628 feet

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given the following in question:

Diameter of Ferris Wheel = 200 feet

a) Distance around Ferris wheel

The distance around Ferris wheel is given by the circumference of Ferris wheel.

b) Formula to calculate circumference

\text{Circumference} = \pi d

where d is the diameter of he wheel.

c) Distance traveled in one rotation

This will be given by the circumference of the Ferris wheel.

\text{Distance} = \pi d = 3.14\times 200 = 628\text{ feet}

Thus, the distance traveled in one rotation is 628 feet.

628.32 feet

Step-by-step explanation:

The SkyView Ferris wheel is 200 feet in diameter.

A) The distance around the Ferris wheel would be the Circumference of  

   the Ferris Wheel.

B) The formula for circumference is given by

     circumference =  \pi ×  diameter

C) the distance traveled in one rotation is the length of the circumference

   given by circumference =  \pi ×  diameter  

∴ circumference = 3.14159 × 200 feet  =  628.32 feet.

The distance around the wheel is 628 feet and distance traveled in one rotation is equal to 628 feet

Solution:

Julie and her brother go to Atlanta to ride the SkyView Ferris wheel.

It measures 200 feet in diameter

Diameter = 200 feet

We know that diameter is twice of radius

diameter = 2 \times radius\\\\200 = 2 \times radius\\\\radius = \frac{200}{2}\\\\radius = 100

Thus radius of wheel is 100 feet

The distance around the ferris wheel is the circumference of wheel

Since, wheel is of circular shape, we can use circumference of circle formula

The circumference of circle is given as:

C = 2 \pi r

Where "r" is the radius and \pi is a constant equal to 3.14

Substitute r = 100 we get,

C = 2 \times 3.14 \times 100 = 628

Thus distance around the wheel is 628 feet

Distance traveled in one rotation = circumference of wheel

The distance traveled in one rotation is equal to 628 feet
