Say a bike has 26" diameter wheels.

If the wheel turns 1 complete revolution, how far does the bike go along the ground?

If the wheel turns 5 complete revolutions, how far does the bike travel along the ground?

Thanks!

that is what i thought, however those two questions on a worksheet come after a question asking "what is the circumference of this wheel." so, would they be the same answer?
