    Re: Two wheels with centres A and B

    Each wheel has a circumference of 14\pi cm. If each wheel rolls along its full circumference five times, how far will it be from where it started?

    And to find the total distance between A and B, you'll also need to include the initial 14 cm distance between the two centers.
