Circumference 22243

The circumference of the first wheel is 0.5 m larger than the circumference of the second wheel. The first wheel turns on the 36 m track as many times as the second on the 30 m track. Determine the rims of both wheels.

Correct answer:

a =  3 m
b =  2.5 m

Step-by-step explanation:

36/a = 30/b a = 0.5+b  36 b=30 a a=0.5+b  30a36b=0 ab=0.5  Row2301 Row1Row2 30a36b=0 0.2b=0.5  b=0.20.5=2.5 a=300+36b=300+36 2.5=3  a=3 b=25=2.5
b=2.5=2.5 m
