Q:
# The carousel on the national mall has four rings of horses. Kiran is running on the inner ring, which has a radius of 9 feet. Mai is riding on the outer ring, which is 8 feet farther out from the center then the inner ring is. And one rotation of the carousel, how much farther does mai travel from Kiran

Accepted Solution

A:

One way to find how much farther Mai travels from Koran would be to calculate the circumference, the distance traveled for both and then subtract.

Mai

C = 3.14 x 34

C = 106.76 feet

Kiran:

C = 3.14 x 18

C = 56.52 feet

106.76 feet - 56.52 feet=

50.24 feet

The difference between the two is 50.24 feet.

Mai

C = 3.14 x 34

C = 106.76 feet

Kiran:

C = 3.14 x 18

C = 56.52 feet

106.76 feet - 56.52 feet=

50.24 feet

The difference between the two is 50.24 feet.
