    Hence write down a word formula for the distance travelled.
    The formula should start:
    distance travelled in m =........

    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
