CCSS IP Math II 6.1.1 Example 3
A car has a circular turning radius of 15.5 feet. The distance between the two front tires is 5.4 feet. To the nearest foot, how much farther does a tire on the outer edge of the turning radius travel than a tire on the inner edge?
- Calculate the circumference of the outer tire’s turn.
- Calculate the circumference of the inside tire’s turn.
- Calculate the difference in the circumference of each tire’s turn.
