somebody help me plz im so stuck
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:

Hi,

I only give you the result and you have to use your own words for the description:

distance travelled in m = (number of revolutions) times 2 m

Remark 1: It isn't necessary that the number of revolutions is a natural number. There are for instance 3.5 revolutions possible.

Remark 2: Didn't I see this problem somewhere else? (I'm not quite certain)

EDIT: Hi, Jhevon this is the 2nd time today that you are 1 minute ahead of me ...
