Question of the task: What is the thickness of Wayne's
wheel?
Our Answer: 12.6651478 cm
How we came up with our confident answer:
When Wayne's Wheel rolled forward four times, it covers a
distance of ten meters. Therefore, it travels 2.5 meters per one
rotation. The second clue stated that the circumference of the hub
was the same as the diameter of the wheel. Then we concluded that the
diameter of Wayne's wheel was 0.795774715 meters. We discovered this
by dividing 2.5 (circumference) by Pi, getting the diameter. The next
clue explained that the thickness of the wheel was the same as the
radius of the hub. We took 0.795994715m and divided by Pi. The result
was 0.12665148 meters, or 12.6651478 centimeters.
