Then what is the circumference, in feet? (Do not round your answer!) If you are moving at three miles per hour, then what is your rate in feet per hour? Then what is your rate in feet per minute? How many circumferences ("footprints" of your tire) will fit into that number of feet? Then how many revolutions are your wheels doing in one minute? If you get stuck, please reply showing how far you have gotten. Thank you!
