Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Hom, a student:
A semi is driving cross country at 70mph.
The tires on the semi have a 3 foot diameter.
What is the linear speed in feet per minute?


Unless something's got omitted here, one of the pieces of information is unnecessary. Does that help?

Good Hunting!

PS: For unit conversions try Google:

[70 mph in feet per minute]
