If a bicycle wheel has a radius of 14 inches. HOw many revolutions will the wheel make in a mile? ( 1 mile = 5.280 feet)

a) 5.280/28 pi
b) 63.360/ 196 pi
c) 5.280/ 14 pi
d) 15.840/ 7 pi
e) 63.360 / 14

D.
let's be:
C-circumference of the wheel.
X-#of revolutions
C=2*Pi*r/12=7*Pi /3 (in feet)
X=5280/C=D

Why do you divide it by 12? Thx

D for me as well.

Circumference is 7/3*pi feet

in 1 mile then, we go 5.28*(3/7*pi) = 15.84/7 * (pi)
