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

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.


C = 3.14 x 34
C = 106.76 feet


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.
