If the diameter of a bicycle wheel is 0.5 meter, how many meters has the center of the wheel traveled when the wheel has made 3 complete revolutions along a straight road?

(A) 3π/2

(B) 3π

(C) 12π

(D) 25π/2

(E) 25π

Distance = (circumference of wheel) * (number of revolutions)

Circumference of the wheel =\(πd=\frac{1}{2}π\)

Wheel makes three complete revolutions (one revolution = length of one circumference)

Distance = \((\frac{1}{2}π) * (3) =\frac{3}{2}π\)

Answer A
