I am having trouble with a word problem.. I am not very good at translating these into a formula.
"73) A bicycle has two sets of gears, one at the pedals and one at the rear wheel. A typical 10-speed bicycle has two gears on the chain wheel and five hears on the rear wheel. The speed at which a bicycle travels depends on three independent factors:
The first is the speed at which the cyclist pedals to turn the front gear
The second is the gear ratio from the front gear to the rear wheel (a ration between the number of teeth on the front gear compared to the number of teeth on the rear gear)
The third is the size of the rear wheel (measured as the diameter of the weel)"
So... it is easy to picture this three factors separately, but I am unsure how they come together :/ I just can't picture or work out a formula at all, my brain doesn't work in that way.. Anyone want to help me get started?
