I don't want any answers i just don't understand the question and would like it explained in common terms for my benefit please!!!!!!

The wheels on a bike have a circumference of 2 meters. Each time the front wheel makes one complete revolution, the bicycle moves forward 2 meters. in your mown words describe how to work out the distance travelled by the bicycle if you know how many revolutions the bicycle has made.
Hence write down a word formula for the distance travelled.
The formula should start:
distance travelled in m =........
I'm so :confused:

If $n$ is the number of revolutions, then the distance d is

$d=2n$ meters.

this is a triple post!

Please do not make multiple posts of the same question, it wastes people's time. case in point, your question has now been answered by 3 users, all saying the exact same thing. so you wasted 2 users' time
